Appendix Tumors Treatment Service

The appendix is a pouch-like tube that is attached to the cecum (the first section of the large intestine or colon). The appendix averages 10 centimeters (cm) in length and is considered part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Generally thought to have no significant function in the body, the appendix may be a part of the lymphatic, exocrine, or endocrine systems.

Appendix cancer occurs when cells in the appendix become abnormal and multiply without control. These cells form a growth of tissue, called a tumor. A tumor can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous, meaning it can spread to other parts of the body). Another name for this type of cancer is appendiceal cancer.

A carcinoid tumor starts in the hormone-producing cells that are normally present in small amounts in almost every organ in the body. A carcinoid tumor arises primarily in either the GI tract or lungs, but it also may occur in the pancreas, a man’s testicles, or a woman’s ovaries. An appendix carcinoid tumor most often occurs at the tip of the appendix. Approximately 66% of all appendix tumors are carcinoid tumors. This type of cancer usually causes no symptoms until it has spread to other organs and often goes unnoticed until it is found during an examination or procedure performed for another reason. An appendix carcinoid tumor that remains confined to the area where it started has a high chance of successful treatment with surgery.

Colonic-type adenocarcinoma accounts for about 10% of appendix tumors and usually occurs at the base of the appendix. This type of tumor looks and behaves like the most common type of colorectal cancer. It often goes unnoticed, and diagnosis is frequently made during or after surgery for appendicitis (inflammation of the appendix that can cause abdominal pain or swelling, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, inability to pass gas, or a low fever that begins after other symptoms).

Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Treatment Service

Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a condition caused by the excessive production of mucus or gelatinous ascites by tumor cells which fills the abdominal and the pelvis. The commonest cause of pseudomyxoma peritonei is primary cancer of appendix. It was thought to be a rare disease but it is a grossly under-diagnosed condition. The actual number of person suffering from this state is alarmingly more than the existing data. Previously, this condition was often misdiagnosed as colonic cancer or ovarian cancer; resulting in insufficient treatment and high mortality rate. PMP has recently received a lot of attention because of advances in medicine and surgical techniques, and the conceptualization of CRS and HIPEC. CRS and HIPEC has greatly improved the outcomes and the quality of life of PMP patients. Research in PMP treatment has paved way for treatment of many other cancers which was initially incurable and life-threatening. By definition, PMP refers to the radiological apppearance that accompanies the accumalation of mucinous material inside the peritoneal cavity. This mucinous ascitis can be because of low-grade or clinically indolent mucinous adenomas; or highly malignant poorly different mucinous carcinomas, and just the term PMP does not differentiate these vastly different outcomes. Sometimes neither a primary appendiceal tumour nor a normal appendix is apparent. In these cases it may be that the appendix has ruptured and has been obliterated by the developing fibrosis. DPAM is often referred to as being a 'borderline malignant' condition or a Non-malignant condition with a malignant clinical course. The tumour is not biologically aggressive because it does not metastasize via the lymphatics or blood stream like gastrointestinal adenocarcinomas, however, it is still a fatal process. The space required within the abdomen and pelvis for nutritional function eventually becomes replaced by mucinous tumour. Most of these tumour cells are surrounded by fluid of varying consistency. Bulky cellular deposits are usually found within the omentum and beneath the right hemidiaphragm. Gravity creates a further accumulation of adenomucinous cells within the pelvis where the peritoneum reflects over the pelvic organs.

Experts do not know exactly what causes ovarian cancer. But they do know that DNA changes play a role in many cancers.Some women are more likely than others to get this rare cancer. Women who are past menopause or who have never been pregnant are more likely to get ovarian cancer.Surgery is the main treatment. The doctor will remove any tumors that he or she can see. This usually means taking out one or both ovaries. It may also mean taking out the fallopian tubes and uterus. After surgery, most women have several months of chemotherapy, which means taking drugs that kill cancer cells. This cancer often comes back after treatment. So you will need regular checkups for the rest of your life. If your cancer does come back, treatment may help you feel better and live longer.

The treatment of ovarian cancer is based on the stage of the disease, which is a reflection of the extent of spread of the cancer to other parts of the body. Staging is performed by the surgeon when the ovarian cancer is removed. During the surgical procedure the surgeon will obtain small pieces of tissue (biopsies) from various sites in the abdominal cavity. During this procedure, depending on the stage (extent) of the disease, the surgeon will either remove just the ovary and fallopian tube or will remove both the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. In addition, the surgeon will attempt to remove all visible cancer.

The colon is the part of the digestive system where the waste material is stored. The rectum is the end of the colon adjacent to the anus. Together, they form a long, muscular tube called the large intestine (also known as the large bowel). Tumors of the colon and rectum are growths arising from the inner wall of the large intestine. Benign tumors of the large intestine are called polyps. Malignant tumors of the large intestine are called cancers. Benign polyps do not invade nearby tissue or spread to other parts of the body. Benign polyps can be easily removed during colonoscopy and are not life-threatening. If benign polyps are not removed from the large intestine, they can become malignant (cancerous) over time. Most of the cancers of the large intestine are believed to have developed from polyps. Cancer of the colon and rectum (also referred to as colorectal cancer) can invade and damage adjacent tissues and organs. Cancer cells can also break away and spread to other parts of the body (such as liver and lung) where new tumors form. The spread of colon cancer to distant organs is called metastasis of the colon cancer. Once metastasis has occurred in colorectal cancer, a complete cure of the cancer is unlikely.

Doctors are certain that colorectal cancer is not contagious (a person cannot catch the disease from a cancer patient). Some people are more likely to develop colorectal cancer than others. Factors that increase a person's risk of colorectal cancer include high fat intake, a family history of colorectal cancer and polyps, the presence of polyps in the large intestine, and chronic ulcerative colitis.

Diets high in fat are believed to predispose humans to colorectal cancer. In countries with high colorectal cancer rates, the fat intake by the population is much higher than in countries with low cancer rates. It is believed that the breakdown products of fat metabolism lead to the formation of cancer-causing chemicals (carcinogens). Diets high in vegetables and high-fiber foods such as whole-grain breads and cereals may rid the bowel of these carcinogens and help reduce the risk of cancer.

Pancreatic Cancers Treatment Service

Pancreatic cancers are often aggressive cancers and the treatment depends on the extent of spread of the cancer and overall health of the patient. Your doctor will advice you the exact treatment plan after a thorough evaluation and adequate investigations which may include a CT scan, MRCP and even an endoscopic evaluation.
The main stay in the treatment of pancreatic cancer is surgery. Though the surgeries take long hours and involve complex procedures, with advances in anaesthesia, medical and intensive care, and better equipment; these surgeries have now become safe and involve a very low mortality rate.
The surgery required depends on the location of the tumor.
Lesions located in the head of the pancreas are treated by a surgery called the Whipple’s Surgery or Pancreatoduodenectomy. It involves removal of the pancreatic head together with the duodenum, part of the bile duct and the gall bladder. The continuity is then restored by anastomosing the remnant pancreas, the bile duct and finally the stomach to the jejunum.
Lesions located in the body and tail of pancreas are treated by a surgery called as distal pancreatectomy. It involves removal of the body and tail of the pancreas and may involve removal of the spleen as well.
Dr. Sanket Mehta not only performs these surgeries routinely, he also performs distal pancreatic surgery by the laparoscopic approach. His study on laparoscopic distal pancreatic surgery and its advantages has been published in Surgical Endoscopy, the highest rated endoscopy journal.
