Stomach cancer, is lead by precancerous changes
in the lining of the stomach. This cancer is the
result of accumulation of malignant or cancerous
group of cells that is responsible for developing
a tumor anywhere in the stomach. Men are more
likely to suffer from stomach cancer as compared
to women. This cancer has also been seen in older
people who are above 55 years of age.
Gastric cancer can spread to adjacent lymph
nodes, and it can grow through the stomach wall
to invade nearby organs such as the colon,
pancreas, spleen and liver. After growing through
the wall of the stomach, this cancer can also
spread to the inner lining of the abdomen, the
peritoneum and other organs within the abdominal
cavity, such as ovaries. In addition, it can
spread through the bloodstream to involve the
lungs or more-distant organs.

Diagnosis of  Stomach Cancer
If you have a symptom that suggests stomach
cancer, your doctor must find out whether it is
really due to cancer or to some other cause. Your
doctor may refer you to a gastroenterologist, a
doctor whose specialty is diagnosing and treating
digestive problems. The doctor asks about your
personal and family health history. You may have
blood or other lab tests. You also may have

Physical Exam  The doctor checks your abdomen
for fluid, swelling, or other changes. The doctor
also feels for swollen lymph nodes. Your skin and
eyes are checked to see if they seem
yellow.Upper GI series  The doctor orders
x-rays of your esophagus and stomach. The x-rays
are taken after you drink a barium solution. The
solution makes your stomach show up more clearly
on the x-rays.Endoscopy  The doctor uses a
thin, lighted tube (endoscope) to look into your
stomach. The doctor first numbs your throat with
an anesthetic spray. You also may receive
medicine to help you relax. The tube is passed
through your mouth and esophagus to the
stomach.Biopsy  The doctor uses an endoscope
to remove tissue from the stomach. A pathologist
checks the tissue under a microscope for cancer
cells. A biopsy is the only sure way to know if
cancer cells are present.

Surgery The goal of surgery is to remove all of
the stomach cancer and a margin of healthy
tissue, when possible. Options include Removing
a Portion of the Stomach (Subtotal
Gastrectomy).During subtotal Gastrectomy, the
surgeon removes only the portion of the stomach
affected by cancer. Subtotal gastrectomy can be
of two types. Distal subtotal gastrectomy is
performed if the tumor cells are present in the
lower part of the stomach near to the stomach
duodenum junction. Proximal subtotal gastrectomy
is done when the tumor is situated in the upper
part of the stomach and also involves the
esophagus Removing the Entire Stomach (Total
Gastrectomy).Total Gastrectomy involves removing
the entire stomach and some surrounding tissue.
The esophagus is then connected directly to the
small intestine to allow food to move through
your digestive system.

Chemotherapy  This therapy uses cancer
destroying drugs for treating stomach cancer.
When the cancer has invaded the stomach wall
layers surrounding the lymph nodes and nearby
organs then chemotherapy is given. For shrinking
the tumor first, chemotherapy is given before the
surgery. It can also be given after the surgery
for destroying the remaining cancer cells.
Chemotherapy can also be combined with radiation
therapy that provides relieves from many cancer
symptoms and can also delay the recurrence of the
cancer. Radiation therapy  Doctors may
recommend radiation therapy in combination with
chemotherapy or surgery. Radiation oncologists a
have extensive experience in the treatment of
gastric cancer, and they use specialized
techniques to limit the radiation dose to
surrounding healthy tissue.
