Over 11,000 stomach cancer-related deaths recorded in Vietnam annually

Stomach cancer ranks the second popular cancers amongst male after lung cancer and ranks fifth cancers amongst female.

Head of Digestion Department of Japan’s Kyoto Miniren Dr.Kinoshita Koshi said that at present diagnosis and treatment of stomach cancer at early stage developed much in the world.

In developed countries like Japan, more and more stomach cancer patients undergo endoscopic surgery to remove tumor when the disease is detected at early stage.

However, in Vietnam, early detection of cancer is not easy because of the lack of periodic examination to ensure the early screening of cancer in the majority of people. Only people with high risk of gastric cancer undergo endoscopy as per medical workers’ advice.

As per international medical experts, Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) or removing abnormal areas in the lining of the stomach is for people who have a very early stage cancer that’s small and within the inner layers of the stomach.

However, most gastric cases in Vietnam are detected late; accordingly, the type of surgery is hard to be applied.
