Peritoneal cancer is a rare type of cancer that occurs in the peritoneum, a thin layer of tissue that lines the abdominal cavity and covers most of the organs in the abdomen. The exact cause of peritoneal cancer is unknown, but potential risk factors include a personal or family history of cancer, genetic mutations such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, exposure to asbestos or certain chemicals, and chronic inflammation in the abdomen. Symptoms of peritoneal cancer may include abdominal pain or swelling, nausea, vomiting, changes in bowel habits, and loss of appetite. Diagnosis is typically made through imaging tests and biopsy, and treatment may involve surgery, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy, depending on the stage and characteristics of the cancer.
