What tests are carried out to diagnose appendix cancer?

Often, appendix cancer remains undiagnosed until it is unexpectedly found during or after abdominal surgery or when an abdominal mass is seen during a CT scan for an unrelated condition.

If appendix cancer is suspected during abdominal surgery, the surgeon would take a tissue sample (biopsy) for a pathologist to review. Otherwise, the cancer may be diagnosed after your abdominal surgery as part of the routine pathology reading. In that case, another surgery may be recommended to make sure all the cancerous tissue is removed.
