Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, develops due to the abnormal division of cells which become a mass of cells and it tends to develop slowly and gradually over many years. Prior to developing into true cancer, pre-cancerous changes occur in the inner lining of the stomach. These changes hardly show any symptoms during the early stages, and therefore, often go undetected. Cancers that form in the different parts of the stomach tend to show different symptoms and different outcomes.
As the Stomach is an important organ in the body and development of cancer in it can actually cause painful lethal outcomes, one needs to take it seriously and should consult a doctor. Types of stomach cancers –
• A gastrointestinal stromal tumour (gist)
• Carcinoid tumour,
and other cancer such as squamous cell carcinoma, small cell carcinoma, and leiomyosarcoma.
Cancer Care Specialities Center at Al Zahra Hospital has a team of board-certified best stomach surgeons who have decades of experience in carrying out minimally invasive surgeries for stomach cancer. Surgeries are done to remove cancer and part or all of the stomach and some nearby lymph nodes, depending on the type and stage of stomach cancer.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF CANCER SURGERIES
As stomach cancer often grows gradually over the years and once detected needs an immediate remedy, one should get a treatment from the Best stomach surgeon in Dubai to get seamless and effective remedial results. Different types of surgeries are conducted to treat stomach cancer. Some of them are:
1.ENDOSCOPIC RESECTION –
Also known as endoscopic mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal resection, the surgery is conducted to treat some very early-stage cancers. This is because the chances of spreading to the lymph nodes are very less. In this type of surgery, the surgeon passes an endoscope down the throat into the stomach. Surgical tools are also passed through the endoscope to remove the tumour and part of the normal stomach wall around it.
2.SUBTOTAL GASTRECTOMY –
This surgery is conducted if cancer has developed in the lower part of the stomach. In this type of surgery, only part of the stomach is removed, sometimes a part of the esophagus or the first part of the small intestine is also removed. The residual section of the stomach is then reattached. Eating after the surgery is easy as only part of the stomach is removed instead of the complete stomach.
As this surgery needs a mere manipulation of stomach organs due to the involvement of removal; it should be performed by Best stomach surgeon Dubai.
3. TOTAL GASTRECTOMY –
Total gastrectomy surgery is conducted if cancer has spread all throughout the stomach. The best stomach surgeon while conducting this surgery removes the entire stomach, omentum, nearby lymph nodes and sometimes might also remove spleen and parts of the esophagus, intestines, pancreas, and other nearby organs. Most total gastrectomy surgeries are done after making a larger incision in the skin.
4. LYMPH NODE REMOVAL –
In the partial or total gastrectomy, the nearby lymph nodes are removed, which is the most important part of the operation procedure. At Gastro Expert, there is a team of best stomach surgeons Dubai, who have years of experience in stomach surgery, carry out this procedure to remove lymph nodes.
