Joseph K.

Abstract


Human abdomen is home to vital organs that are integral to normal
functioning of body. As with the size and signi􀃶cance of the
abdomen, the types of cancers associated with it are diverse in
nature and severity. Speci􀃶cally related with stomach,
adenocarcinoma, lymphoma, gastrointestinal tumor and carcinoid
alongwith other nearby disease in the cavity like kidney cancer,
pancreatic cancer are some of the commonly known cancer types.
There are some promising solutions to several types of cancers and
it has helped in lowering the cancer related mortality. But still lot
needs to be done. For instance pancreatic cancer is an unfortunate
exception to the general trend of improvement in cancer related
mortality. There is less than 5 year survival rate for this cancer.
