Appendiceal Cancer Experts

If you have appendix cancer, the specialists at Memorial Sloan Kettering will provide highly individualized care and personal attention at every step of the way during your diagnosis and treatment. Our experts see about 150 patients with various types of appendix cancer each year, a high number for a rare cancer that is diagnosed annually in fewer than 1,000 patients in the United States.

Whether you have just been diagnosed with early-stage appendix cancer or you have more-advanced disease, we provide treatments that offer the best chance to cure or control your cancer.
