GASTROINTESTINAL CANCER TREATMENT

Gastrointestinal cancer

Gastrointestinal (GI) cancer refers to a group of cancers that affect the digestive system like Esophageal Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Small Intestine Cancer. They include the cancers of the upper GI tract. & Gallbladder Cancer, Liver Cancer, Pancreas Cancer affecting the Hepatobiliary system and Pancreas (HPB). Colorectal cancers affecting the bowel (large intestine or colon and rectum), and cancers affecting the anus.. WHO reports indicate that GI cancers are the second most common cause of cancer deaths after lung cancer with the most important reason being the failure to detect at an early stage.

Relatively less reported in the past, there has been an increased incidence of GI cancers in India due to significant changes in lifestyle predominantly due to alcohol abuse, tobacco use (through both smoking and smokeless use such as chewing tobacco), changes in dietary patterns, such as low-fiber diets, an increase in meat consumption (including chicken), and exposure to higher levels of pollution (ICMR, 2016). Early screening and detection helps in improving the survival rate of patients.

Most of the GI cancers, if not all,usually start as benign lesions such as polyps which can last for a few years before it develops into cancer.

Therefore there is a great opportunity to eradicate GI cancers provided they are detected early and removed before they develop into cancers.

Furthermore, the 5-year survival rate following treatment is much higher at earlier stages of the cancer. Earlier cancers have better outcomes and treated with minimally invasive techniques that are associated with lower morbidity and earlier return to normal life.

Gastrointestinal Cancer Screening & Prevention

While genetic factors related to gastrointestinal cancers cannot be controlled, following are some ways in which you can reduce your overall risk of developing cancer.

  • Get a cancer screening once in a year
  • Reduce your alcohol consumption
  • Get more physical exercise
  • If you contract a Helicobacter pylori infection, seek treatment for it immediately
  • Adopt a healthy diet. Eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed or canned foods
  • Quit smoking
  • Maintain good oral hygiene
