About the offer

Brachytherapy is a method that shows excellent results for patients with metastatic stomach cancer who can't undergo chemotherapy and other treatment methods due to their bad condition. For example, brachytherapy was used among patients with giant ( up to 102 mm) metastatic lesions originating from stomach tumors, and oncologists achieved local control in 89% of all cases. Still, sometimes, brachytherapy might be considered the primary treatment method. Medical practitioners place a small piece of radioactive material inside the tumor to damage cancer cells and interrupt its growth and possible development. In addition, doctors often use medical imaging methods to prevent potential adverse effects and ensure the radioactive seed is implanted correctly. However, brachytherapy didn't have a rigorous course of treatment; in some cases, radioactive sources might stay in the patient's body for long years. Before starting this treatment, the patient must undergo various lab tests, medical imaging procedures, and other examinations to create the most suitable treatment plan. Also, brachytherapy might help patients with stomach cancer decrease the tumor stage and prepare for further surgical treatment.
