Symptoms of stomach cancer

During a long time stomach cancer can be asymptomatic. Usually, the patient already has gastritis or gastric and/or duodenal ulcer that hides primary manifestations of the process:

  • heartburn resulted from reflux of gastric materials back in esophagus;
  • foul-smelling eructation;
  • pain or sensation of heaviness in the stomach;
  • altered defecation pattern.

With the development of the tumour, a patient suffers from the loss of body weight, irritancy, continuous fatigue and depression, fastidium or food faddism.


Treatment of gastric cancer at different stages

  • Initial stages (1A-B) are treated with subtotal gastrectomy. A section (proximal or distal) of the stomach is removed. German doctors practice attenuated laparoscopic approach - all process is carried out through small incisions;
  • At stage 2-3A the tumour penetrates a muscle layer of the stomach and gradually “acquires” regional lymph nodes. In this case a total resection of the stomach and relevant lymph nodes is applied;
  • Stage 3B suggests metastases in external lymph nodes which increases volume of the surgery;
  • Stage 4 - neighbouring organs and tissues are affected. Main treatment method is chemo and beam therapy. Surgeons can reconstruct patency of digestive tract and carry out other palliative operations.

Of course I thank my wife, even though she is young, but she probably loves me. After all, that was her who more than a month hammered into my head her mantra like a prayer that the operation must be done in Turkey. And she gained her end. I honestly do not regret, and even happy that she did. Firstly, it is not so expensive, and secondly, the... Read full review

LIV Hospital Oncological Department specializes in the diagnostics and treatment of all types of cancer. There is the whole range of modern equipment, including MRT, CT, PET-CT, TrueBeam ST and others in the department. It is through the use of a linear accelerator LIV Hospital TrueBeam ST cancer patients get the exact dose of radiation directed to the affected cells and tissues. TrueBeam ST visualization is very important in the treatment of lung cancer, breast cancer, spinal or prostate tumors. Software Acuros XB, for the first time in Turkey, was applied in LIV Hospital. It calculates more accurately and quickly the amount of radiation dose than other systems. All these factors extremely reduce the period of treatment and minimize the chance of spread of the tumor.
