The following tests and procedures may be used to detect, diagnose, and stage ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cancer: Physical exam and history : An exam of the body to check general signs of health, including checking for signs of disease, such as lumps or anything else that seems unusual.

Regarding carcinomatosis of gastric origin, the results of intraperitoneal chemotherapy with conventional chemotherapeutic agents such as mitomycin C, oxaliplatin and 5FU remain disappointing. The ultrasound transducer bounces sound waves off internal organs and tissues to make echoes that form a sonogram computer picture.
In the brain there may be headaches, vomiting and focal neurological features. The pictures are made by a computer linked to an x-ray machine.
LS-0 means no implants are seen throughout the regions. One of the leading advantages of the open technique is a better control of the intraperitoneal circulation and uniform distribution of the cytostatic agents.

It is estimated that at least 15% of colon tumor patients, 60% of ovarian cancer patients and 50% of gastric tumor patients may develop Peritoneal Carcinomatosis.
Peritoneal cancer survival rate is very low compared to other cancers. There were reports that half among patients of this kind of cancer were able to reach the two years mark. About 20% survived for the five-year survival rate.
Furthermore, patients diagnosed with mesothelioma peritoreal cancer are. Paul Sugarbaker and his colleagues have persevered in the study and treat ment of peritoneal carcinomatosis.
