Appendix Cancer

The appendix is a vestigial (leftover) organ that is located off the end of the large intestine. Appendix tumors can be benign (harmless) or malignant (cancerous). Benign tumors will grow in size but not spread to other parts of the body, but malignant tumors must be taken out via surgery or killed via chemotherapy.
