Best Gastrointestinal Cancer Treatment In Bangalore

Gastrointestinal cancer (GI cancer) refers to cancers of the esophagus, pancreas, stomach, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary system, and small intestine that affect the gastrointestinal tract and other organs contained within the digestive system. These malignant gastric tumors, often known as stomach cancer, are most frequently reported in people aged 50 to 70. Males, on the other hand, have a higher risk of having them.

The stomach is a part of the digestive system that processes nutrients in foods and aids in the removal of waste from the body. Everything we eat falls down our esophagus and into our stomach to be processed. Partially digested food travels from the stomach to the small intestine and finally to the large intestine.

Stomach cancer is characterized as abnormal cell development that begins in the stomach. The stomach is a muscular pouch in the upper part of the abdomen, slightly below the ribs. Your stomach accepts and holds the food you consume before breaking it down and digesting it. Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, can occur anywhere in the stomach. Most stomach cancers develop in the main section of the stomach (stomach body).

Gastro onco surgeons consider where cancer occurs in the stomach when selecting your treatment options. Surgery to remove stomach cancer is frequently part of the treatment. The gastrointestinal oncologist may suggest other therapies both before and after surgery, depending on the disease progression.

Stages of Stomach Cancer are:
TNM Staging: Tumour, node, and metastasis staging are the most typical way.
Stage 0 (dysplasia): The stomach’s inner lining contains highly abnormal cells. Stage 1: The malignant cells have not spread through the thick muscle of the stomach wall.
Stage 2: Cancer cells may have reached into or through the stomach’s inner, supporting, or muscle layer. It could potentially have migrated to nearby lymph nodes.
Stage 3: Malignant cells may have spread into or through the stomach’s inner, supporting, muscle, or outer layers. It may have spread to adjacent lymph nodes.
Stage 4: Cancer cells have spread to surrounding organs or tissues, as well as distant bodily parts.

Yes, there is a higher probability of recovery when gastrointestinal cancer is detected early. When gastrointestinal cancer is diagnosed, it is frequently in an advanced stage. This can be treated in later stages, but it is rarely cured.

1. Gastric (stomach) cancer.
2. Pancreatic cancer

In general, men are more likely than women to get gastrointestinal cancer, and the risk increases with age. These malignancies have been associated with cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking, and poor diet habits.

The gastrointestinal oncologist will perform a physical examination of the body to evaluate general health signs, including looking for signs of disease, such as tumors or anything unusual, and inquire about the patient’s health history. Colonoscopy, endoscopy, biopsy, and imaging are some of the most common diagnostic tests for gastrointestinal cancer. The doctor will suggest the following test also:

1. Blood test to analyse the number of RBC, WBC, platelets.
2. Upper endoscopy
3. A series of x-rays of the esophagus and stomach are taken during a barium swallow.
4. CT scan
5. Tissue biopsies to look for cancer cells.
