Massive retroperitoneal tumor!

This patient constantly felt pressure in abdominal cavity for the last 2 months, he didn’t experience any other symptoms. CT scan and ultrasound showed multilocular intraabdominal mass while the tumor markers were in the normal range.

Three weeks ago laparoscopic exploration showed central tumor mass without metastatic changes through abdominal cavity.

This abnormal and rare growth developed inside part of the abdominal cavity known as the retroperitoneal space.

As this space is hidden toward the back of the abdomen and the organs there are quite mobile, a retroperitoneal tumor can grow quite large, shifting organs out of its path, before being discovered.

Main complaints are enlarged belly and abdominal pain or pressure.

The patient will have a more positive prognosis if the tumor is cut out whole before it has a chance to spread.
