For 67years I've led a very healthy life and thank the "Almighty" for it. However as I said all good things come to an end some time and so be it. Out of the blues was detected the dreadful illness "C" which had shown no signs or symptoms whatsoever..... Time had now come for me to choose a very efficient Oncologist for my treatment.

My mother was diagnosed of colon cancer, and I was recommended to see Dr Deepak Chhabra for consultation.
The first impression of Dr Chhabra was… he is so young! But after consulting him we realized his level of experience and there was a sense of confidence he spilt over us.We knew we could trust him.....

Causes

What are the causes of stomach cancer?

The exact causes of cancer are still undetermined, but there are some known risk factors that can make a person more likely to get this disease.

Having a risk factor, or even several risk factors, does not mean that you will get the disease. And many people who get the disease may not have had any known risk factors.

Research has shown that some of these risk factors affect the DNA of cells in the stomach and oesophagus, which can result in abnormal cell growth and may cause tumors to form.

Risk factors for stomach cancer include:
  • Helicobacter pylori infection:
    H. pylori is a bacterium that commonly infects the inner lining (the mucosa) of the stomach. Infection with H. pylori can cause stomach inflammation and ulcers. It also increases the risk of stomach cancer, but only a small number of infected people develop stomach cancer.
  • Long-term inflammation of the stomach:
    People who have conditions associated with long-term stomach inflammation (such as the blood disease pernicious anaemia) are at increased risk of stomach cancer. Also, people who have had part of their stomach removed may have long-term stomach inflammation and increased risk of stomach cancer many years after their surgery.
  • Smoking:
    Smokers are more likely than non-smokers to develop stomach cancer. Heavy smokers are most at risk. Family history: Close relatives (parents, brothers, sisters, or children) of a person with a history of stomach cancer are somewhat more likely to develop the disease themselves. If many close relatives have a history of stomach cancer, the risk is even greater.
  • Poor diet, lack of physical activity, or obesity:
    Studies suggest that people who eat a diet high in foods that are smoked, salted, or pickled have an increased risk for stomach cancer. On the other hand, people who eat a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables may have a lower risk of this disease.

My name is Ural Shah and our entire family was shaken up when one fine day in January 2010 my mother-in-law Mrs. Geeta Shah started bleeding and the gynaecologist diagnosed her with cancer.
