Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, he or she will perform a physical examination and request a series of tests to establish an accurate diagnosis, such as endoscopy, biopsy, endoscopic ultrasound, computed tomography, and positron emission tomography (PET).
The treatment is established depending on how advanced the cancer is, its location, and your general health conditions, but in most cases, the following are used:
- To remove small, localized tumors that have not spread.
- To remove affected lymph nodes.
