Oncology

Upper gastrointestinal cancer (upper GI cancer) affects the gastrointestinal tract and organs that play accessory to digestion, such as oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, biliary system and the pancreas.

Once symptoms of upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancer have been detected (symptoms will depend entirely on the affected organ, but can include difficulty swallowing caused by an obstruction) it is important to seek diagnosis and treatment immediately.

Once diagnosed, the treatment of upper GI cancer is dependent on the type and location of the cancer. We are specialists in upper GI oncology (upper GI cancer treatment), and our patients have the reassurance of individualised treatment offered in a team environment.
