OESOPHAGEAL & GASTRIC CANCER SURGERY
Gastric cancer occurs when there is abnormal cell growth in the glandular cells that line the stomach wall.
Oesophageal cancer is a malignant tumour that grows in the lining of the oesophagus – the tube that carries food from the mouth down to the stomach. Two prominent types make up 90% of all oesophageal cancers. Squamous cell cancers usually affect the upper part of the oesophagus, where adenocarcinomas are more prevalent where the oesophagus joins the stomach.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?
The treatment of oesophageal and gastric cancer requires detailed discussion with your specialist surgeon and other oncology experts. Information regarding oesophageal and gastric cancer can be obtained from the office of Dr Smith and Dr Leibman.
