Krukenberg carcinoma

Common Name(s)

Krukenberg carcinoma

Krukenberg Carcinoma is a rare disorder characterized by abnormal cell growth in the ovaries. The abnormal ovary cell growth in individuals with this disorder can also affect the digestive system. Hence, individuals often experience digestive and reproductive problems. Common symptoms individuals have include fatigue, stomach pain, and abdominal pain. The disorder is often diagnosed in adulthood, since symptoms arise when ovaries are fully developed. Treatment is based on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patients. Doctors may suggest patients undergo surgery to remove abnormal cell growth from the stomach and the ovaries.
