Treatment depends on the stage of the disease. Very early cancer (Stage 1) can be removed by direct surgery. But, most of the cancers are detected late. If a disease is not spread to another organ then, treatment is chemotherapy and radiotherapy followed by surgery. If cancer has spread to another organ like liver or lung, then cure is not possible.
