Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer is rare and complex, but at Roswell Park, we diagnose and treat patients with stomach cancer and its related conditions everyday. We believe every patient is unique, and we approach cancer treatment on an individual and personal basis, treating the whole person, not just the cancer.

Roswell Park is a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers — such as gastric cancer — by the BlueCross BlueShield Association. Only 90 cancer facilities in the nation have received this distinction for complex and rare cancers.

Patients with suspected or newly-diagnosed stomach cancer may have an initial evaluation within 24 hours. A team member will meet with you to outline further diagnostics, treatment or need for evaluation with the multidisciplinary team.

An accurate analysis by a pathologist is critical in determining the best approach to treatment. Our scientists analyze large numbers of specimens and review a high volume of cases. This expertise allows them to identify even slight variances, which may distinguish a highly treatable cancer from one that is more aggressive.
