Laparascopic Surgery for Stomach Cancer
During laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in the skin and inserts an instrument to examine the inside of the abdomen. If any suspicious lesion is found, it can be removed and looked at under the microscope (called a laparoscopic biopsy). Learn more about laparoscopy.
To confirm a diagnosis, your doctor will need to remove tissue from your stomach and have it examined under a microscope. This is called a biopsy. Learn more about biopsy.
