Got my scan few dys ago, my doctor says it looks ok, still small portion of a tumor, but wonder what means extremely subtie stippled peritoneal disease adjacentto the spenic flexure of the colon. If anyone translate this for me please.

I'm not a doctor, but my translation would be that there are very subtle (or slight; difficult to detect)specks of the disease on the peritonium (the membrane lining the abdomen)next to the splenic flexure (which is a sharp bend in the colon between the transverse and the descending colon), located in the upper left quadrant of your abdomen.
