Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Has he had a CAT scan to see if it has spread outside the stomach?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No cat scan has been done, it is only today that it has been diagnosed as such
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
That will be the key test

If it has spread outside the stomach, likely chemotherapy and radiation as it is usually not curable

If it is just in the stomach, surgery and possible chemo/radiation for a potential cure
