Stomach cancer is a malignant cancer that brings vital damage to people by threatening their lives and reducing their life quality. Besides physical painfulness, it also destroys patients’ mental condition and threatens their family harmony.
Although stomach cancer is not strange to the public, it is usually not connected with most people’s life. As a result, when it comes unexpectedly, few people can accepted to be closely connected with stomach cancer in the rest of their life.
It is very natural for patients to show negative emotions like complaining, fear and pessimism being diagnosed with stomach cancer. However, these emotions are very harmful for their condition. If they can calm down as soon as possible, correctly face the disease and cooperate with doctor’s treatment, they may be able to get a good treatment effect. On the contrary, if they sink into sorrow for a long time, they will miss the best treatment time and increase their physical painfulness. Some patients may even choose to put an end to their lives being overwhelmed by the great pressure of cancer.
Damage to family life
Stomach cancer also brings to patients’ family all kinds of bad influence. Relatives of patients on one hand have to face the painfulness of the patient, and on the other hand have to keep smiling to cheer the patient up, hide the true condition or their own negative emotion from the patient so as to comfort and encourage the patient.
Besides, relatives of the patient have to take up the burden of the family, so as to afford the family and the treatment cost of the patient. With the worsening of the patient’s emotion, the family peace may be broken. Hence, with one sick, the whole family will be restless.
Experts from Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou remind that stomach cancer is hazardous. Therefore, go to regular hospital for treatment timely once symptoms occur.
*Surgery, in addition to the appropriate chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are effective in treating early cancer, but certain patients in late stage of cancer may not be tolerate surgery well as they can be relatively weak. A combination of carefully planned minimally invasive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the side effects and discomfort of treatment and may help patient get better efficacy.
