Hello Friends,

I am Dr. Amit Jain, General Surgeon. Today I will tell you about GI cancer. Ye kya hai. Isme hume cancer of oesophagus ho skta hai, stomach cancer, liver cancer, pancreas cancer. We all know that prevention is better than cure. So, we all can prevent these cancers. For GI cancer the most important risk factors are alcohol and smoking. Agar apko koi liver disorder hai like chronic liver disease due to alcohol, hepatitis B & C. We can detect them at early stage. Chances of survival are very good. If the screening can be done early, we can prevent all these problems.

Iske symptoms hain anorexia, weight loss, loss of appetite. Symptom of GI cancer are dysphagia. Patient apne aap diet change krta rehta hai. Patient hmare pass tab aate hain jab vo liquid bhi nhi le paa rhen hain. And us advance stage pe hum disease ko prevent nhi kr pate hain.

Thank You!
