What are the current treatments for Adenocarcinoid Tumor?
Treatment for adenocarcinoid tumors of the appendix depend on the stage and subtype. Most adenocarcinoid tumors of the appendix can be treated with surgical removal of the appendix (appendectomy). For adenocarcinoid tumors that have spread beyond the appendix, further treatments, such as partial removal of the large colon (hemicolectomy); lymph node removal; removal of the peritoneum; intravenous chemotherapy; or heated (hyperthermic) chemotherapy to the abdomen (HIPEC), may be required.
