Appendix cancer – alternatives to surgery

Cancer Newsline - 11/04/2013

If appendix cancer is found early, surgery is the standard of care. Alternatives to surgery are available for advanced appendix cancer, but more data is needed to accurately treat this rare form of cancer. Cathy Eng, M.D., associate professor of Gastrointestinal (GI) Medical Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses options for non-surgical candidates including hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (heated chemotherapy). Eng explains treatment options as well as ways to expand research for appendix cancer.

Guest: Cathy Eng, M.D.
