November is earmarked as the month to raise awareness around gastric cancer, with a lot of debates and discussion on food and nourishment. The major aim is to educate people about early detection of stomach cancer, its prevention, and associated risk factors. Fulfilling the responsibility to help patients affected by stomach cancer is also a part of the awareness month.
The stomach has five parts — cardia, fundus, corpus, antrum and pylorus. Cancer cells can be formed in different sections of the stomach with different symptoms, having different outcomes and treatment options. When it comes to cancer treatment, AMRI Hospitals provides advanced facilities for its diagnoses and treatment. Stomach cancer is also known as gastric cancer and is the fourth most common cancer type, being the second leading cause of cancer deaths.
AMRI Hospitals offers surgery, medicine, radiotherapy and the most scientifically advanced treatment for stomach cancer. It develops slowly, making it difficult to observe changes in the stomach and detect it in early stages. Such complications require highly experienced team of oncologists, backed by latest technology and equipment. Oncologists at AMRI Hospitals study the treatment plans by taking into account various factors, which include the type and location of the cancer, age of the patient, and stage of the disease.
The exorbitant cost of cancer treatment protocols denies patients a chance to lead a quality life. Realizing all these challenges, the Asian Cancer Institute collaborated with AMRI Hospitals to offer cancer treatments at affordable cost. AMRI focuses on providing top-notch cancer treatment with the support of the Mumbai-based Asian Cancer Institute.
The Stomach Cancer Awareness Month is about spreading the word, sharing the knowledge, saving lives and ultimately finding a cure for it. AMRI Hospitals promises cancer patients a comprehensive treatment by providing advanced aid in complex situations. According to healthcare experts at AMRI, “Following a healthy diet, maintaining healthy weight and ditching unhealthy habits, especially smoking, are the best ways to avoid suffering from stomach cancer. Being a subtle and elusive type of cancer, it is crucial that the disease is detected at an early stage. Even the slightest change should be discussed with the doctor. Stomach cancer tends to develop over the years, and forms a tumor which is difficult to operate.” “Surviving cancer comes with the first step of educating and spreading awareness by leading fulfilling lives,” the oncologist added.
