Stomach cancer treatment in Italy

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 in Italy

  • 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.
