Stomach Cancer: Effects and Management

The location of the stomach cancer and the extent of its spread determine how it is treated. Stomach cancer is also referred to as gastric cancer. However, other elements including a person's age, general health, and preferences might also be crucial. If possible, surgery to remove the cancer is usually included in treatment since it provides the highest chance for long-term survival. However, if the cancer has progressed far or if a person is not in good enough health for it, surgery might not be a good option. In addition to or instead of surgery, other therapies like chemotherapy and radiation therapy are frequently used in medical care. In some circumstances, newer therapies including immunotherapy and medicines with specific targets may be beneficial.
