πŸŽ—οΈ A Close Look at Gastric Cancer πŸ₯

Gastric cancer, as per the World Health Organization, is the sixth most common type of cancer and the third most common cause of cancer-related deaths globally. In the United States alone, approximately 26,380 new cases and 11,090 deaths from gastric cancer are expected in 2022. The lifetime risk of developing stomach cancer is around 0.8%. 🌎

πŸ’‘Understanding Gastric Cancer 🩺

Cancer in the stomach, part of the digestive tract, varies from cancer in the intestines, colon, and rectum. The stomach comprises five parts, each with different functions. Gastric cancer initiates in the cells lining the innermost layer of the stomach and gradually spreads through the outer layers as it grows. πŸ”¬

Gastric cancer types include adenocarcinomas, gastric lymphomas, gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), and carcinoid tumors, among others. Risk factors range from Helicobacter pylori gastric infection, advanced age, male gender, diet, chronic atrophic gastritis, pernicious anemia, gastric adenomatous polyps, family history, to cigarette smoking. πŸ“‹

🚨 Gastric Cancer Symptoms and Prognosis πŸš‘

Unfortunately, early symptoms of gastric cancer often resemble common ailments and are frequently overlooked. As a result, most patients present symptoms of advanced stage disease at the time of diagnosis. Early-stage symptoms may include indigestion, stomach discomfort, bloating, mild nausea, and heartburn. More advanced stages may show signs like blood in the stool, vomiting, weight loss, stomach pain, jaundice, and difficulty swallowing. 😷

The prognosis of gastric cancer patients is related to the tumor’s extent and involves both nodal involvement and direct tumor extension beyond the gastric wall. Treatment of gastric cancer typically involves surgical resection with regional lymphadenectomy for early-stage disease. Later-stage disease treatment may also involve chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, or a combination. πŸ’Š

As Toby Keith continues his battle with gastric cancer, his strength, courage, and resilience offer hope and inspiration to many. Here’s wishing him a speedy recovery! πŸŒˆπŸ™
