Treatments include surgical removal of the cancerous portion of the stomach, radiation and chemotherapy. The goal of surgical removal is to remove the tumor through a total or subtotal gastrectomy. For early superficial cancers, endoscopic mucosal resection may be useful. According to facts radiation alone is not effective against gastric cancer. www.chwchospital.org
