          Stomach cancer

          valikhnovska  >  Stomach cancer

          Stomach cancer

          A malignant tumor arising from the epithelium of the gastric mucosa. Depending on the histological structure, gastric cancer is divided into squamous cell, persnickellular (undifferentiated), glandular (adenocarcinoma).

          Symptoms of stomach cancer:

          • discomfort and pain in the stomach area
          • heartburn
          • aversion to protein foods
          • loose stools
          • bad breath (burping with a rotten-egg smell)
          • weight loss
          • increased gas excretion
          • nausea with bouts of vomiting that bring relief only for a short time
          • anemia
          • constant feeling of an overfull stomach
          • rapid satiety despite eating small amounts of food
          • signs of cancer intoxication – rapid fatigue and weakness

          Risk factors:

          The likelihood of developing the disease is influenced by:

          • having close relatives with a history of stomach cancer
          • consuming large amounts of salty, spicy, smoked foods, animal fats. Low content of vegetables and fruits in the diet.
          • consumption of low-quality and expired products
          • stomach polyps
          • adenomatous polyposis
          • ulcer disease
          • chronic gastritis
          • duodeno-gastric refluxс
          • elevated level of Helicobacter Pilory
          • intestinal metaplasia – precancerous changes of the gastric mucosa, when the gastric epithelium is replaced by intestinal epithelium
          • age over 60 years, especially in men
          • 5-10 years after gastric surgery

          “I recommend consulting with a specialist once a year for cancer screening – a research to diagnose cancer in asymptomatic stages and minimize the risk of cancer.”

              Sterenchuk-Bogdanova Natalia Vladimirovna

              When you live calmly for yourself … work … and dream of a new red dress ..and a trip to the sea …. it’s hard to imagine the emotions of a person who one fine Monday hears his terrible diagnosis of CANCER! You still hope this is a mistake and everything will be fine. You get up in the morning, get yourself in order. The son walks to kindergarten. But there are moments like this .. You, realizing that everything now depends on you, gather yourself to pieces and tell yourself that this is a joke of fate that will soon end. Doctors are people who are both friends and enemies. You will be angry, but there are no culprits.
              My story began with various doctors, tests, tests ….
              Thank God that fate has given me such a person who has become my friend. This friend is Valikhnovskaya Kateryna Hennadiivna. A person who gives hope and strengthens faith in the heart. I sincerely thank Mrs. Catherine for her support, help and kind words in difficult times.
              I wish you well 🙌 I believe that there are good people, and most of them. Inspiration to you in work! And long life!

              I would like to thank my doctor of the AA Shalimov Institute of Surgery and Transplantology Valikhnovska Kateryna Hennadiivna for her professionalism and sensitive attitude. She is not only a doctor from God, she knows how to inspire hope in a person’s recovery. She told me that you can only jump on the positive side. The stitches have healed, the memory of the difficult postoperative days is erased, but when it’s hard for me, I remember: you can only jump on the positive side.
              Thank you Kateryna Gennadyevna for your ability to save people not only with a scalpel, but also with words, care and warmth.
              Be blessed in all your deeds.
