    Stomach Cancer Awareness: What are the Treatment Options?

    The world is acknowledging gastric or stomach cancer awareness month this November. Unfortunately, the heralding of the many tireless efforts by those in the medical field to combat this disease often presents itself in its last stages. We also recognize the brave souls that have fought this disease and were victorious while remembering those who were not as lucky.

    Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding trigger factors may work well to prevent stomach cancer. Early screening is also recommended as it does increase the chance of survival. For most people, a positive test result for stomach cancer can be overwhelming. Still, the right information can help make an informed decision on available treatment options, which depends on the severity of the case.

    Surgery typically involves removing the malignant cells and part of the healthy cells to ensure that none of the cancerous cells remains. This may be performed by endoscopic mucosal resection, subtotal gastrectomy, or total gastrectomy, where the entire stomach is removed. After surgery, the patient will require a few weeks to recuperate.

    Radiation therapy is infrequently used in treating stomach cancer due to the proximity of other critical body organs. However, in the late stages of cancer, it may be preferred. It works by targeting the malignant cells with radioactive rays and destroying them.

    Chemotherapy involves the use of cytotoxic medicines to combat the cancerous cells and stop them from growing.

    Immunotherapy is a treatment that seeks to boost the body’s immunity to fight off cancerous cells. It may be given to those who have already undergone chemotherapy.

    After diagnosis, the doctor will be able to advise on the appropriate treatment to be taken. The most crucial factor is to have a positive attitude.
