Treatment for stomach cancer

There are many different types of treatment for stomach cancer. Your treatment will depend on you and your cancer.

Gastric cancer is difficult to cure, unless found at an early stage, as early gastric cancer doesn’t cause many symptoms and tends to be diagnosed when it has advanced.

Treatment for gastric cancer may include surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.

Surgery remains the only curative treatment for gastric cancer, where areas of the stomach and lymphatic tissue are removed. Chemotherapy can also be used before, as well as after surgery to reduce the size of tumours, decrease the risk of recurrence and for palliative patients to remove obstruction.1
