What Do You Need To Know More About Stomach Cancer!!!!!!

Stomach cancer, or gastric cancer, is a relatively uncommon type of cancer


Symptoms Of Stomach 

They include:
  • persistent indigestion
  • feeling very full or bloated after meals
  • persistent stomach pain
Symptoms of advanced stomach cancer can include:
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss                             
As the early symptoms are similar to many conditions, stomach cancer is often advanced by the time it's diagnosed. Therefore, it's important to get any possible symptoms of stomach cancer checked out by your GP as soon as possible.

Types Of Stomach Cancer

There are different types of stomach cancer. 95% develop in the cells of the stomach lining and are known as adenocarcinoma of the stomach.
Less common types include lymphoma of the stomach, which develops in the lymphatic tissue and gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GISTs), which develop in the muscle or connective tissue of the stomach wall.

How Stomach Cancer Is Treated??

Many cases of stomach cancer cannot be completely cured, but it is still possible to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life using chemotherapy and in some cases radiotherapy and surgery.
Surgery to remove some or all of the stomach is known as a gastronomy.
Chemotherapy can also be used before surgery to help shrink the tumor and sometimes after surgery to help prevent the cancer from returning.

Esophageal cancer is a malignant growth of tissues that line the inner surface of the esophagus. Dr. S.G.Balamurugan, is one of the experienced surgical oncologist in India, offers affordable stomach and esophagus cancers at Guru Cancer Hospital, Madurai
