What is Gastric Cancer?

Gastric cancer also is known as stomach cancer, is cancer growth in the mucus-producing cells that is the inner lining of the stomach. The disease usually grows slowly over many years. Cancer can be spread from the stomach to the bones, liver, lungs,  abdomen and lymph nodes.

Different types of stomach cancer:

  • Adenocarcinoma.
  • Lymphoma.
  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumour (GIST).
  • A carcinoid tumour.

Gastric cancer sign and symptoms include:

  • Stomach pain
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Dysphagia
  • Postprandial fullness
  • Hematemesis
  • Enlarged lymph nodes 

Stomach cancer risk factor includes:

  • Bleeding from the surgery
  • Blood clots
  • Risks of anaesthesia,
  • Post-surgery infection
  • Haemorrhage
  • Side effects of chemotherapy (Nausea, Vomiting, Hair loss)
  • Side effects of  radiation therapy ( skin irritation )
  • The gastric surgery patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation, you’ll be asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital on same days before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

 

 

Oncology surgeon will advise some investigation ( blood test, CT scan, Pet scan and upper endoscopy) to know the stage of your stomach cancer helps the doctor to decide which treatments are good. Screening has been shown to reduce your risk of dying of gastric cancer. The stages of gastric cancer are Stage I, II, III and stage IV. 

Treatment of a Gastric Cancer is followed by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or all of them.

Surgery: Oncology surgeon will plan for gastric cancer surgery depends on the location, size, and locally invasive characteristics of a tumour and stops cancer from spreading to other parts of your body. 

Types of surgery in gastric cancer include:

  • Total gastrectomy required for negative margins
  • Subtotal gastrectomy for tumours of the distal stomach.
  • Esophago gastrectomy for tumours of the cardio.
  • Removing Lymph node.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy helps to surgery and radiation therapy to control and shrink a tumour. It can be given before or after gastric or stomach surgery. Chemotherapy helps the patients to stop the recurrence of bladder cancer.

Radiation therapy: Radiation can be given after surgery to help in destroys gastric or stomach surgery and delay tumour growth. The patient may need three to five sessions per week for 3 to 6 weeks, depending on cancer.  There are some types of Radiation therapy uses intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) to kill cancer.

Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy is normally given after surgery, sometimes oncology surgeon advice for immunotherapy with antibodies such as pembrolizumab (Keytruda) and nivolumab (Opdivo) for good results. 

 

 

Patient need follow with a routine investigation like blood tests including the CEA (if it was elevated before surgery) tumour marker every three months for the first two years and follow with Pet scan or CT scan.
