Staging in carcinoid of the appendix? - Ärzteforum

Post#1 »

21y old patient, right lower quadrant pain. Laparoscopy: appendicitis, appendectomy performed (with endobag).
Pathology: carcinoid (22mm in diameter) of the appendix.

Right hemicolectomy planned next week.

Does this patient need any staging examinations at this time?

I would suggest reading the review from Mayo regarding treatment of Carcinoid Tumors.

I'd suggest chest X-ray to rule out lung mets, and maybe liver ultrasound to rule out liver ones.
