Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Stomach Cancer
Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications
Learn About Stomach Cancer
Stomach cancer is the 5th most common cancer worldwide
According to the American Cancer Society, stomach cancer mostly affects older people, with the average age of diagnosis being 68. In addition, the lifetime risk of developing stomach cancer is higher in men (about 1 in 96) than in women (about 1 in 152).
Radiation therapy can be used in different ways to help treat stomach cancer. For some earlier-stage cancers, radiation can be used before surgery to try to shrink the cancer and make it easier to remove. After surgery, radiation therapy can be used to try to kill any cancer cells that weren't removed during the surgery. For cancers that can't be removed by surgery, radiation therapy can sometimes be used to help slow the growth of the cancer and ease symptoms, such as pain, bleeding, or eating problems.
A Non-Invasive Solution for Stomach Cancer
Advanced radiation therapies can help reduce pain and increase survival rates
Radiation treatment has proven successful in reducing the pain caused by stomach cancer. By focusing on the cancerous tissue and shrinking it, pressure on surrounding areas is also relieved, leading to less discomfort
Radiation therapy can be paired with other treatments to improve survival rates and slow down the development of the disease. By taking a comprehensive approach to treating stomach cancer, better results and a longer survival time can be achieved
Radiation therapy can enhance the quality of life for stomach cancer patients by reducing symptoms such as pain, nausea, and vomiting. This allows patients to feel more comfortable and more capable of participating in the activities they love
