The stomach is a J-shaped organ in the upper abdomen. It is part of the digestive system, which processes nutrients (vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and water) in foods that are eaten and helps pass waste material out of the body. Food moves from the throat to the stomach through a hollow, muscular tube called the esophagus. After leaving the stomach, partly-digested food passes into the small intestine and then into the large intestine. The wall of the stomach is made up of 3 layers of tissue: the mucosal (innermost) layer, the muscular is (middle) layer, and the serosal (outermost) layer. Gastric cancer begins in the cells lining the mucosal layer and spreads through the outer layers as it grows. The treatment for stomach cancer depends upon the stage of the cancer patient has been diagnosed at. The best chances for the full recovery of the patient is when diagnosis is done at very early stage. In case the size of tumour or the tissue growth is very large then our cancer specialist may advise for a few cycles of chemotherapy before going for surgery.
Surgery - Endoscopic mucosal resection refers to cutting out a tumor or part of an organ in abdomen. Best cancer hospitals in India would generally resort to laparoscopic surgery rather than open surgery unless and until suggested otherwise. In this operation, the cancer infected organ in the abdomen or part of the organ is removed through a small incision.
Subtotal (partial) Gastrectomy: This type of abdomen cancer or GI surgery is often used by some of the best cancer hospitals in India if the cancer is only in the lower part of the stomach and close to the intestines. It is also sometimes used for cancers that are only in the upper part of the stomach. Only part of the stomach is removed, sometimes along with part of the esophagus i.e food pipe or the first part of the small intestine.
Total Gastrectomy: This method is used if the cancer has spread throughout the stomach. It is also often used if the cancer is in the upper part of the stomach. The surgeon removes all of the stomach, nearby lymph nodes, spleen and parts of the esophagus, intestines, pancreas, and other nearby organs. The end of the esophagus is then attached to part of the small intestine. People who have had a total gastrectomy can only eat a small amount of food at a time. Because of this, they must eat more often.
