The stomach cancer is otherwise called as gastric cancer. It takes years to progress and hence develop slowly. Pre-cancerous changes do occur in the inner lining of the stomach but the symptoms are hardly noticeable. As a result the stomach cancer goes undetected while it is in the early stages.

Robotic Oncologists in Hyderabad start their treatment after a thorough analysis with various clinical tests that confirm the site of the cancer. The different kinds of stomach cancer are:

  1. Adenocarcinoma : They are caused in the innermost lining of the stomach i.e. mucosa
  2. Lymphoma : It attacks the immune system tissue found in the walls of the stomach
  3. Gastrointestinal stromal Tumor : They affect the interstitial cells in the lining of the stomach
  4. Carcinoid tumor : It attacks the hormones producing cells in the stomach
  5. Other cancers : cancers like squamous cell carcinoma, small cell carcinoma are also found to originate in the stomach.

There are certain things that one must be aware of stomach cancers which include :

What are the risk factors of stomach cancer ?

The research has been going on to know the cause so that if can be ruled out even before it springs. However there are certain risk factors.

  • Pernicous Anaemia
  • Smoking
  • Hereditary like if the parents or the siblings have had stomach cancer earlier
  • Stomach inflammation
  • Foods that are rich in salt, smoked foods


What are the symptoms of stomach cancer?

There is a tendency to get confused with the symptoms to that of another not so serious disease with stomach cancer. Yet to rule out any such issues a series of tests for Stomach cancer treatments in Hyderabad should be taken. The symptoms for stomach cancer are :

  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Weakness
  • Feeling tired due to anaemia
  • Recurring stomach pain
  • Feeling full early


How is stomach cancer diagnosed ?

The right diagnosis will lead to the right treatment. The diagnosis includes:

  • Physical exam
  • Medical and family history
  • Complete Blood Count
  • Anendoscopy
  • Biopsy
  • CT scan
  • Faecal blood test
  • Barium swallow


How is stomach cancer treated?

Most of the stomach cancers have to be treated by performing a surgery. With the newest and safe procedures like the minimally invasive robotic surgeries conducted at robotic oncology centres in Hyderabad are more preferred than the traditional modes of surgery. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy; Clinical trials and targeted therapy are also used to treat stomach cancers. However the stomach cancer robotic treatment is considered a better option.

Can stomach cancer be inherited ?

Stomach cancers can be inherited. Hence, regular screening for cancers can be helpful to prevent the onset of stomach cancers. Genetic testing is yet another option where the genetic sample is analysed for the alteration in the genes.

Why KIMS ?

KIMS is best known for robotic surgery for stomach cancers in Hyderabad as it is most efficiently conducted by the oncologist surgeons after having had enough training on the equipments. People prefer this procedure over other methods today for the reasons that the recovery is faster; the hospital stay is also lesser; moreover the surgical removal of the tumor is safe.
