I wanted to know how to react. Let it be done for now. Thanks.

Oncologist: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago
it depends on if the stomach cancer is localized to the stomach or if the stomach cancer has metastasized to the rest of his body

if the stomach cancer is localized to the stomach, it could be curable with radiation and chemotherapy and surgery

if he has been hiding the stomach cancer for many months to years, then chances are it has spread to the rest of his body and is no longer curable.

only CT scans of the rest of his body can see if his stomach cancer has spread to the rest of his body

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating below the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today
