A 54-year-old male patient was referred with complaints of vague epigastric pain, abdominal fullness, loss of appetite and two episodes of hematemesis since three months. Initially, he ignored the symptoms attributing them to a "gas problem". After a bout of hematemesis he presented himself to a physician. On examination, a firm to hard lump was noted in the epigastrium and right hypochondrium. The patient underwent a contrast enhanced CT for further evaluation. Shown below are a few images of a CT scan obtained after administration of oral and intravenous contrast. What is your diagnosis?
