Are there Different Types of Stomach Cancer?

A stomach has five different parts. From the five, the first three parts of the stomach are cardia, fundus, body/corpus. Medical professionals call them proximal stomach. The remaining two parts are antrum and pylorus. They make up the distal stomach. Additionally, the stomach wall has five different layers. Beginning with the innermost layer, the sequence of stomach layers is Mucosa, Submucosa, Muscularis Propria, Subserosa, and Serosa.

The type of stomach cancer and its stage depend on the location. Different types of gastric cancer have varied symptoms and cause issues in patients.

  1. Adenocarcinoma - More than 90% of stomach cancers are adenocarcinomas that start with an abnormal growth in the mucosa of stomach.
  2. Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST) - It is a rare type of stomach cancer that starts in the stomach walls, especially the Interstitial Cells of Cajal.
  3. Neuroendocrine Tumors - A few types of tumors may start in the neuroendocrine cells in the stomach.
  4. Lymphomas - When abnormal growth begins in the immune system cells lymphocytes, doctors call it lymphomas.

Except for the first type, the other three types of cancer can develop in any part of the body. But, if cancer develops in the stomach region, we can list it broadly under the stomach cancer category.

With experience in treating common adenocarcinomas, GISTs, and other types of tumors, Dr. Jay Chokshi is South Gujarat’s first National Board Certified HPB and GI surgeon.

What are the Risks of Gastric Cancer?

As with any other disease, there are a few modifiable and non-modifiable risk factors that affect your chances of getting stomach cancer. Let us understand how your behavior affects your health.

1. Modifiable Risk Factors of Stomach Cancer

Obesity, poor diet with a large amount of preserved food, heavy alcohol consumption, and tobacco usage, chemical exposure, exposure to radiation, etc.

2. Non-Modifiable Risk Factors of Stomach Cancer

Age, gender, ethnicity, geographical location, family history, genetic predisposition, certain types of viruses, history of Helicobacter Pylori infection, previous stomach surgery, stomach polyps, pernicious anemia, inherited cancer syndromes, etc.

Dr. Jay Chokshi recommends altering your lifestyle by including regular physical activity and a healthy diet to prevent stomach cancer. If you want to address non-modifiable risks factors, undergo routine medical checkups to detect gastric cancer early.

What are the Surgeries for Stomach Cancer?

If cancer has widespread, the doctor may suggest a palliative surgery to prevent bleeding or blockage of the stomach. An unresectable stomach cancer surgery or palliative surgery will help patients with symptoms but not cure the disease. A few common examples of palliative surgeries that Dr. Jay Chokshi has performed include gastric bypass, placement of jejunostomy feeding tube and endoscopic tumor ablation to keep the tumor from blocking the stomach.

However, if the doctor has detected stomach cancer early, he will remove the cancerous tumor from the stomach. In curative gastric cancer surgery, the doctor may remove a part of the stomach. When cancer has spread throughout the organ, and it is necessary to remove the entire organ to save the patient, Dr. Jay Chokshi will recommend total gastrectomy (surgical removal of the stomach). It is a lymphadenectomy when the doctors remove surrounding lymph nodes and tissues.

Depending on the stage and location of the tumor, the surgical gastroenterologist will perform different types of surgeries. For example, removing the lower part of the stomach is known as a distal gastrectomy. The surgical removal of the upper part of the stomach is proximal gastrectomy.

What is the Cost of Stomach Cancer Surgery in Surat?

The cost varies depending on the stomach cancer surgery necessary to help the patient. The expenditure of a stomach removal surgery/total gastrectomy is approximately ₹60,000 to ₹80,000. If it is a subtotal gastrectomy, the cost may change depending on the extent of the cancerous tumor.

When it comes to palliative surgery such as a gastric bypass or surgery to place a feeding bag or a stent placement surgery, the cost can be ₹30,000 - ₹40,000.

There can be additional charges depending on the hospital fees, selection of room, hospital stay, postoperative complications, and the fees of the medical professionals involved in the surgical procedures.

For an accurate cost, an in-person consultation is a must. With a thorough physical examination and understanding of the patient's condition, Dr. Jay Chokshi will provide you with the possible treatment options. Call +91-9016519832 to book an appointment today.
