Upper gastrointestinal cancer

Upper gastrointestinal cancer

The most common and most lethal upper gastrointestinal cancers are esophageal and stomach cancers. They do not have any symptoms in the early stages and are, therefore, often diagnosed at an advanced stage which decreases the chances of survival. Common esophageal cancers are squamous cell carcinomas and adenocarcinomas. The common types of stomach cancer are Type-1 gastric cancer, Type-2 gastric cancer and Type-3 cancer. Investigations for staging are performed by MRI, PET and CT and transabdominal ultrasound scans. Your gastrointestinal surgeon will be able to advise you on the correct treatment.
