Cancer Risks and Symptoms
Early-stage GI cancers rarely cause early-warning symptoms. Additionally, many people believe these early signs are symptomatic of other causes. Among the most common signs are poor appetite, weight loss and abdominal pain.
Oftentimes, cancer survivors are relieved or excited to be finished with treatment. However, they may feel lost about their future or worried that cancer could come back. City of Hope provides excellent supportive care and long-term follow-up programs to help manage the process of treatment and recovery.
If you have received a gastrointestinal cancer diagnosis elsewhere, ask for a second opinion from a City of Hope Orange County expert. An accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment plan are essential for the best outcomes.
