The decision is made individually, in each case, based on the results of molecular genetic analyzes with the compilation of the genetic profile of your tumor.
Some patients may also be offered to participate in clinical trials of new drugs and methods at any stage of gastric cancer. In many cases, we are talking about expensive, effective drugs.
