Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is a malignant lung tumor characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung.
The two main types are small-cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC).
Cancer is a highly prevalent disease in the elderly. Accurate prediction of surgical risk is important in deciding whether an elderly patient is suitable for cancer surgery and for obtaining consent.
Elderly subjects have been denied surgery because of their presumed higher mortality and morbidity. There is evidence that long-term outcomes after surgical treatment do not differ according to the patient’s age. Still elderly cancer patients are frequently denied standard surgical management .
Pseudmyxoma peritoni (PSM) is a tumor of the abdominal cavity caused by cancerous cells (mucinous adenocarcinoma) that produce abundant mucin or gelatinous ascites.
This disease is most commonly caused by an appendiceal primary cancer. Mucinous tumors of the ovary have also been implicated, although in most cases ovarian involvement is favored to be a metastasis from an appendiceal or other gastrointestinal source.
Are the most common Mesenchymal tumours originating in the digestive tract. It is seen most commonly in the stomach (50%), small bowl (25%), colon (10%), Omentum/mesentery (7%), esophagus (5%) and <1% in retroperitoneum.
