Spanish term or phrase: adenocarcinoma de ciego estadio III
Estimados ProZistas,

Este termino aparece en el siguiente contexto:

Se trata de un varón de 75 años, con antecedentes personales de hipertensión arterial y diabetes mellitus, diagnosticado de adenocarcinoma de ciego estadio III en febrero de 2006.

Qué tiene que ver "ciego"? Is it "blind stage III"? Puede ser, pero no aparece nada parecido si lo busco por Google.

Ideas?

Gracias de antemano,

Cecum: The cecum (also spelled caecum), the first portion of the large bowel, situated in the lower right quadrant of the abdomen.

The cecum receives fecal material from the small bowel (ileum) which opens into it. The appendix is attached to the cecum.

The word "cecum" comes from the Latin "caecus" meaning "blind." This refers to the fact that the bottom of the cecum is a blind pouch (a cul de sac) leading nowhere

agree  Muriel Vasconcellos: Any combination of terms is OK. The US NLM uses the noun for the body part instead of the verb, but it can go before or after the type of pathology ("after" meaning "of the [body part]").
