Gastric and oesophageal cancers treatments


Treatments for gastric and oesophageal cancers

The kind of treatment that your specialist will recommend will depend mainly on the size and stage of the tumour and if it has spread. Your age and general health will also be taken into account.

Both oesophageal and gastric cancers can be difficult to treat simply because they are often diagnosed at a late stage, but they are often treatable. There are several treatment options that may be considered.

You’ll probably have regular check-ups, tests and scans during and after any treatments to see how you are progressing.
