Adenocarcinoma forms in mucus-secreting glands throughout the body. It can occur in many different places in the body. Its name comes from the word “adeno,” meaning 'pertaining to a gland' and “carcinoma” meaning cancer. The tissues affected by adenocarcinoma are part of a larger tissue category known as epithelial. Epithelial cells and tissues line skin, glands and organs like the stomach, esophagus and many more.
