Treatment Options for Esophageal & Stomach Cancers

Every patient is different, and the potential treatment options for esophageal and stomach cancers vary from case to case. The treatment options available to you will depend on the specific type of cancer you have, the stage of your cancer, and your own unique medical history, and your team of cancer doctors will work with you to help you understand the options available to you and make the best possible choice for moving forward.

Whenever possible, our cancer treatment team strives to us noninvasive treatments that produce a minimal impact on your life – and we’re proud to offer a variety of radiation therapy treatments at our cancer centers. That said, radiation therapy isn’t always effective alone, and it may need to be combined with other treatments or may not be feasible at all.

Depending on your specific case, your cancer doctor may recommend any of the following treatments for esophageal or stomach cancer:

  • Surgery: The tumor is removed through surgical excision.
  • Radiation Therapy: A state-of-the-art machine delivers high-dose radiation directly to the site of the tumor, killing cancerous cells while preserving surrounding tissue.
  • Chemotherapy: Drugs that target fast-growing cells are given to the patient, killing cancerous cells.
  • Targeted Therapy: Similar to chemotherapy, this treatment uses newer drugs that attack cancer cells while producing fewer side effects.
  • Clinical Trials: In some cases, you may be eligible for trials of new drugs that may offer a more effective treatment.

In many cases, your treatment team will combine two or more of the above treatment options to produce the best overall result. Ultimately, it all depends on the specifics of your case and your own unique medical situation.
