A 72-year-old woman has been admitted with shortness of breath. On further questioning, she says she has been unwell for about 8 weeks. She has decreased appetite and nausea when she eats. She has lost weight but her abdomen feels swollen. She has generalized dull abdomen pain and constipation, which is unusual for her. What is the likely diagnosis?
