Surgical Oncology – Gastro Intestinal Cancers
SURGERY FOR GASTRO INTESTINAL CANCERS
Surgery is an important treatment for stomach cancer. Even if the cancer has spread outside the stomach, it might still be possible to remove it. This is major surgery and some people may not be physically well enough to have it. Most people will need chemotherapy as well as surgery.
You may have surgery to remove all or part of the stomach. During the operation, the surgeon also removes an area of healthy tissue and some nearby lymph nodes. This is to try to make sure that all the cancer cells are gone. If the cancer has spread, the surgeon may also remove part of some nearby organs.
Your Oncology Surgeon will talk to you about the operation and what to expect afterwards. If you’re not sure about anything, it’s important that you ask. You can also discuss any concerns you have about the operation.
If you do decide to have the surgery, your Oncology Surgeon will give you advice about the best way to prepare for it.
