Can a stomach cancer (without metastasis) kill you?
Posted in the Cancer Forum
#1 Aug 28, 2012
I read in a previous post on this forum
(and on other websites) that cancer can kill by causing failure of a vital organ, or by causing chemical imbalance in the body, or by depressing the immune system.
I am wondering if the stomach cancer (itself, without metastasis) is able to kill.
The stomach is an important organ (we need it for digestion) but I presume it could be possible to survive even if it stopped to work (by using intravenous feeding).
Therefore, is it possible to die from a stomach cancer, if there is no metastasis? If it is the case, how does the stomach cancer kill you?
Or does it kill only if it has metastasised to a more important organ, for example to the liver?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
