Adenocarcinoma is the name given to a malignant tumor that arises in the cells of the glandular epithelial tissue., responsible for excretion. As such, it is a type of cancer that can appear in different organs, and is most common in the prostate, lung, gastrointestinal tract, breast and intestine, as is the case for the Brazilian singer.
In the initial stage, it does not show symptoms. However, in more advanced stages, abdominal pain or discomfort, changes in stool, and even weight loss may appear for no apparent reason.
Being over the age of 50, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, and smoking are some of the risk factors for developing this disease.
