Overview

There are no x-ray findings associated with appendix cancer. However, an x-ray may be helpful in the diagnosis of complications of acute appendicitis as one of the most prevalentpresentations of appendix cancer, which include appendix perforation and pneumoperitoneum. Appendix mucocele might present with calcification in plain abdominal X-rays. Metastaticbone lesions of both adenocarcinoma and carcinoid tumors of appendix are extremely rare but might present with osteolitic (adenocarcinom) and a mixture of osteosclerotic and osteolyticchanges (carcinoid tumors).
