Help reading/translating a word

I'm having a heck of a time trying to decipher a word. It is in the parish records for someone that died. In the remarks, I can make out 'kreft' (cancer) but I can't figure out the second word.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Brystet = the breast

Bryst means both breast and chest in Norwegian.
So this is breast- or possibly lung cancer.
