Pseudomyxoma peritonei

Pseudomyxoma peritonei is a rare malignant tumor that starts in the appendix and spreads through the mucus-secreting cells in the abdomen and pelvis. It starts in the appendix, then spreads throughout the abdominal cavity. Digestive functions deteriorate as the tumors worsen, and the abdominal area becomes swollen.
