What is peritoneal cancer?

Peritoneal cancer is the abnormal growth of cells that develops in the peritoneum, a thin tissue that lines the inside of the abdomen and covers the uterus, bladder, and rectum in the body. This cancer is rare and is often confused with other cancers such as stomach, intestinal, or ovarian.
