Gastro-intestinal cancer refers to conditions affecting the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, small intestine, bowel, rectum and the biliary system. The treatment of these cancers is commonly managed by the same group of specialist consultants and may include surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
The most appropriate treatment for this type of cancer is influenced by the type, grade and stage of disease. Consultants will also take in to account the individual patient’s fitness, nutritional status and any other pre-existing medical conditions.
At Nova Healthcare we offer radiotherapy and chemotherapy for patients with gastro-intestinal cancer.
