Simultaneous removal of 2 tumors. MCSC patient's historyNews
An 82-year-old patient applied to the Coloproctology department of the MCSC named after A.S. Loginov. 3 months before, she had general weakness, discomfort in the upper abdomen, and decreased body weight.
According to the results of the examination by MCSC specialists, the patient was found to have adenocarcinoma – a malignant neoplasm in the transverse colon. In addition, computed tomography showed the presence of another tumor in the stomach – the appearance of 2 such tumors at the same time is rare. The doctors decided on surgical treatment.
During the operation, the patient had both a malignant neoplasm in the transverse intestine and a tumor on the posterior wall of the stomach removed. According to the results of histological examination, the neoplasm in the stomach turned out to be benign.
The postoperative period proceeded without complications and on the 9th day the patient was discharged home. Now she feels well, leads an active life and continues to undergo follow-up examinations at the outpatient oncology care center at her place of residence.
Very often benign and malignant tumors can be detected randomly, which means that the result of treatment may not always be favorable, as in this clinical example.Be healthy!
