Prognosis

Without any treatment, stomach cancer will eventually get larger, spread to other parts of the body and would be potentially fatal.

If it is diagnosed and treated at an early stage (before the cancer has spread away from the stomach into the lymph glands or other parts of the body), then there is a good chance of curing the cancer with treatment.

In some cases, the cancer is not diagnosed at such an early stage, in which case treatment would be used to try and minimise symptoms and try and slow the growth of the cancer for as long as possible.

Each patient is assessed individually and your specialist will be able to give you a much more accurate assessment of your particular outlook.
