Diagnosis of Stomach Cancer

If you have any one or several of the symptoms mentioned herein, make an appointment with a gastroenterologist at the earliest. The specialist may use the following diagnostic methods to determine whether you have stomach cancer.

Physical examination – Doctor first checks your abdomen for any swelling or fluid buildup, feels for any swollen lymph node, checks your eyes and skin for any visible changes and then request you to get specific blood or lab tests done.

Upper GI-Series – The doctor orders X-rays of your stomach and oesophagus after making you drink a barium solution, which will help make your internal organs more visible in the X-ray and spot any abnormality.

Endoscopy – A thin, light tube (endoscope) is used by the doctor to look more clearly into your stomach. It is passed through your mouth and oesophagus into your stomach.

Biopsy – Using the endoscope, the doctor removes tissue from the stomach and sends it to a pathologist who looks for cancer cells under microscope. A biopsy is the only confirm method to know if cancer cells are present.

Surgical Treatment Approach

Surgery helps remove all of the stomach cancer and a portion of the surrounding healthy tissue, when possible. It included two methods:

Subtotal Gastrostomy Stomach cancer surgery

While performing Subtotal Gastrostomy, the surgeon removes only the portion of the stomach with cancer cells. There are two methods used in this –

  • A) Distal subtotal gastrostomy – Performed only if the cancer cells are present in the lower part of the stomach, near the stomach duodenum junction.

  • B)Proximal Subtotal gastrostomy – This is done when the tumour is present in the upper part of the stomach and involves the oesophagus.

Total Gastrostomy – It involves removing the entire stomach and some surrounding tissues. Oesophagus and small intestine are then connected, allowing food to move through the digestive system.

Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Removing lymph nodes

The surgeon examines and removes lymph nodes in the abdomen to remove cancer cells. This is used when the stomach cancer has spread to the surrounding lymph nodes.

Chemotherapy Treatment Approach

In this treatment cancer-destroying drugs are used to treat stomach cancer, when stomach wall layers surrounding the lymph nodes and nearby organs are invaded by the malignant cells. Chemotherapy drugs also are given before surgery for shrinking the tumour and for destroying the remaining cancer cells afterwards.

Radiation Therapy Treatment

Radiation therapy is recommended in combination with chemotherapy or surgery. Specialized techniques are used by highly experienced Radiation Oncologists who help reduce the radiation dose to surrounding healthy tissues.
