Treatment of stomach cancer

Surgery is the only treatment that can cure the disease. However, this cancer type is often advanced at the time of diagnosis as 75% of the patients have lymph node metastasis or distant metastasis. The possibility for curative surgery is therefore limited and chemotherapy or radiation therapy is the best option.

Advanced stomach cancer with extensive lymph node metastasis or distant metastasis is considered to be a disease that is relatively sensitive to chemotherapy.
