The choice of technique depends on the size of the neoplasm.

1. Surgery for stomach cancer

Specialists carry out surgical treatment of stomach cancer for people with stages 1-3 of the pathology. Types of interventions:

  • endoscopic submucosal dissection - removal of a tumor that is located in the mucous membrane. Doctors perform the procedure with an endoscope without any incisions on the body;

  • resection - excision of a part of the stomach. Surgeons perform a resection if the tumor is in the lower part of the organ;

  • gastrectomy - removal of the entire stomach. Intervention is indicated if the neoplasm is localized in the upper part of the stomach or has spread throughout the organ.


2. Radiation therapy (radiotherapy)

To reduce the amount of intervention, doctors perform preoperative radiation.


Postoperative radiotherapy destroys the remaining abnormal cells. In stage 4 of the disease, therapy relieves symptoms.

To shrink the tumor, oncologists prescribe preoperative chemotherapy. Medical treatment for stomach cancer after surgery destroys the remaining abnormal cells and prevents relapse. In advanced stages of stomach cancer, taking chemotherapy drugs improves the quality of life.

4. Intraperitoneal hot chemotherapy HIPEC

Hot chemistry is indicated for patients with an inoperable tumor that has spread to the abdominal organs.

During HIPEC, doctors use a heated concentrated preparation. Due to the high temperature, it penetrates deeper into organ tissues and destroys more malignant cells than traditional chemistry.

5. Targeted therapy

Targeted drugs block the growth and division of abnormal cells. Such treatment is indicated if the analysis showed a genetic mutation in the tumor.

6. Immunotherapy

If the treatment does not work, oncologists prescribe drug immunotherapy  Keytruda . It helps the body distinguish malignant cells from healthy ones and destroy them on its own.
