    Need a diagnosis for seedlings found in peritoneum. Dr. does biopsies of probable squamous cell serous carcinoma in peritoneum.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Are the seedlings what were found during the biopsy or the reason for the biopsy?

    The patient was referred to an OB-GYN from a urologist for evaluation of ascites in the abdomen and adnexal masses. The plan was to do a laparoscopy and biopsy in order to arrive at a diagnosis and to aspirate some of the ascitic fluid.

    Hope that helps. Thanks.
