Do You Have Persistent Stomach Problems?

Gastro-Intestinal Cancer is a term used to represent a group of cancers that affect the digestive system. Cancers to the oesophagus, gall bladder, liver, pancreas, stomach, small intestine, bowel and anus are all gastro-intestinal cancers. This form of cancer does not discriminate much between men and women and is slowly becoming more common.

Patients experience difficulty when the tumour in their stomach slowly becomes bigger. Difficulty in swallowing food, indigestion, vomiting or choking can all be symptoms of a gastro intestinal cancer.
Most commonly found in old people. Alcohol, smoking and obesity are usually seen to be the more dangerous causative factors for this type of cancer. People with an acid reflux may have higher possibility of such a cancer. Barret’s Esophagus might also evolve into a gastro intestine cancer. Accidental swallowing of caustic substances can also prove to promote cancer in the gastrointestinal region.
An oesophagram or a barium swallow is a test used to consider the possibility of such a disease. An endoscopy can also be used to view the interior of the oesophagus. This can be followed by a biopsy test to confirm the presence of the disease. Endoscopic ultra sound is another method to view in detail the walls of the oesophagus and understand the changes in the oesophagus.
The treatment method to be undertaken depends on the state and stage of the cancer. It takes into account the age of the patient. The preferences of the patient will also be considered before making a decision on the final treatment methods. The main treatment of gastro-intestinal cancer begins with a surgery usually.
