Hi,

I have recently found out that my grandad aged 66 has stomach cancer, he was taken to hospital after being ill about a week and a half ago and since he's been in there found out he's got stomach cancer and been told he may only have a few weeks to live.
He has cancer inside and the outside of his stomach and as far as im aware this has not spread to anywhere else. Results are coming back on monday regarding a biopsy that he had.
Do i expect the worse or can something be done?

If your grandfather is a healthy 66 there is no reason why he should not receive chemotherapy.If anyone has said 'only a few weeks' please try and take a second opinion from a surgeon who treats stomach cancer frequently.All the best
