Stomach Cancer | Treatment


How is stomach cancer treated?

Treatments for stomach cancer include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or a combination of these treatments. The choice of treatment depends on whether the cancer is just in the stomach or if it has spread to other places in the body. A person’s age and overall health will also affect the choice of treatment.
