Why going to China for cancer treatment?

Stomach cancer, or gastric cancer, originates in the stomach’s cell growth, located in the upper middle part of the abdomen. Its main function is to break down and digest food.

The occurrence of stomach cancer can arise in any region of the stomach, with the primary area being the stomach body, particularly in most parts of the world.

Treatment decisions are influenced by various factors, including the cancer’s location, stage, and cell type. Typically, treatment involves surgical removal of the stomach cancer, often complemented by other therapies before and after surgery.

The prognosis for stomach cancer is more favorable when the cancer is confined to the stomach, especially in cases of small tumors where many patients can achieve a cure. However, the majority of stomach cancers are diagnosed at an advanced stage, making a cure less likely. Stomach cancer that penetrates the stomach wall or spreads to distant organs poses significant challenges in terms of treatment and prognosis.
