Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix

Common Name(s)

Adenocarcinoma of the Appendix

Adenocarcinoma of the appendix is a epithelial cancer of the appendix. The term 'epithelium' refers to cells that line hollow organs and glands and those that make up the outer surface of the body. Epithelial cells help to protect or enclose organs. Some produce mucus or other secretions. Types of adenocarcinoma of the appendix include mucinous adenocarcinoma, non-mucinous adenocarcinoma, and possibly signet cell carcinoma of appendix (this is still debated).
