Stomach Cancer

What is stomach cancer?

Stomach cancer is a cancer-like disease that occurs in the stomach. It originates from the mucosal epithelial cells on the surface of the gastric wall. It can occur in various parts of the stomach (the antrum-pylorus area is the most common, the gastric cardia area is the second, and the gastric body is slightly less common). Can invade different depths and breadths of the gastric wall. According to the 2020 global cancer statistics released by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the incidence of gastric cancer ranks in the top 5 of all cancers, accounting for 5.6%, which greatly threatens human health.

So can middle and late-staged stomach cancer be treated? Minimally invasive techniques with less side effects and less trauma can help gastric cancer patients avoid surgical resection, avoid the pain of traditional radiotherapy and chemotherapy, effectively prolong survival and improve quality of life.

Stomach Cancer Diagnosis

Treatment for Stomach Cancer

Traditional Anti-cancer Technology

Surgical resection: Big Trauma, high risk, easy to have complications, great damage to patients’ gastrointestinal function and lower their life quality. It is only suggested for early stage stomach cancer patients.

Radiation and Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy kills normal cells while killing cancer cells, resulting in damage to the immune system, and has toxic side effects such as: hair loss, vomiting, etc. It is not suitable for advanced stomach cancer patients.

New Treatment Options for Stomach Cancer Patients-- Minimally Invasive Technology

Minimally Invasive Therapy: 2-3 mm incision, few side effects, little pain

Interventional therapy: with a 1-2 millimeter incision, anti-cancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than systemic chemotherapy, killing cancer cells more accurately.

Photodynamic therapy: when photosensitizer is exposed to a specific wavelength of light, they produce a form of oxygen that kills nearby cells. It functions quickly (in 48 to 72 hours) with less pain, lower recurrence rate, and is suitable for weak or advanced patients.

Gene Targeted therapy: killing cancer cells from their roots, gene-targeted therapy is the most radical anticancer treatment. Compared with traditional therapies, gene-targeted therapy is more accurate, more effective and safer.

TCM & Western Medicine: Combination of traditional Chinese medicine and minimally invasive techniques can not only kill the cancer cells effectively, but also reduce toxic side effects, lower the rate of cancer recurrence, and greatly improve survival rate.

Green Chemotherapy: Improved from traditional chemotherapy, green chemotherapy, avoiding the disadvantage of systematic chemotherapy, greatly improving curative effect and reducing toxic side effects, is a new generation of chemical weapons that kills tumors.

Natural Therapy: No harm, no pain and no hospitalization. Natural therapy can reduce the toxic side effects causing by radiation and chemotherapy and can improve the quality of life of stomach cancer patients and it is applicable to all cancer patients.

Stomach Cancer Staging

How long can a stomach cancer patient live with stomach cancer? American Cancer Society provides an update of 5-year relative survival statistics based on stomach cancer stages and it’s as follow:

Stomach Cancer Stage I: 88%--94%;

Stomach Cancer Stage II: 68%--82%;

Stomach Cancer Stage III: 18%--54%;

Stomach Cancer Stage IV: below 18%.

Timely and effective treatment is the important factors to improve the 5-year relative survival rate of stomach cancer. Minimally invasive therapy featuring smaller traumas, fewer side effects, and good efficacy, prevents stomach cancer patients from surgical resection and side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
