My neighbor has a stomach tumor & he is getting chemo, does this mean he has cancer?
I know nothing about medical things so this might be obvious. So please understand I don't know what a tumor is except a growth of some kind.....I am wondering if this is serious or something that can be taken care of with no problem....he also has to have open heart surgery. The family is acting like it is not a big deal cause the open heart surgury is just one not a quadruple or some other worst type...I want to know realistically what these means to prepare rather than be more shocked if this means he is most likely not going to make it....I know that cancer in the stomach or alteast over 20 years ago meant the person was going to die. So I want honestly what can you tell me about this?
Additional Details
It is in his stomach & he has diabetes & he is going to have bypass surgery. I know I was always told that when cancer gets to the stomach is can't be cured but that was years ago. thanks to you all for your answers.

A tumor IS cancer. Chemotherapy is cancer treatment. He does have cancer, but fortunately most cancer is non-fatal these days. But chemotherapy is an awful treament.

Yes it is cancer

If he's getting chemo most likely he has cancer, He may not survive too long with other other illnesses that he had. Stomach cancer is serious but if caught early and treated with chemo and surgery there may be a chance, So Sorry.

Yes. And unfortunately the post above is wrong. Most cancer is fatal.


Lamont
If it is just his stomach and not more than one organ it might be OK.

If you hear that it has spread to more than one organ then it is probably just a matter of time.

tumor = cancer plain and simple

Yes, he has cancer.With proper treatment, medicine and diet we can control the growth of cancer.There are stories of overcoming cancer with a strong will Power and faith in god.It is true that in medical science there is no cure but can last our days.Any way one day we have to die. So why worrying about the death.


peanut
Yes, he has cancer.


Dustin R.
If he is getting chemo, I would say the odds are pretty good that he has cancer. I don't think someone would arbitrarily expose himself/herself to gamma radiation. Not only is it expensive, it can be dangerous after awhile. Based on what you described, I wouldn't dismiss that he has something. The tumor, diabetes, and open heart surgery make it seem to sketchy. The family may be right that it's no big deal. Or they may be saying that for good measure so nobody else will flip out. All I can say is that I wish your neighbor a speedy recovery.

You are very right in what you have said.

In earlier days stomach cancer was diagnosed usually in its late stages, diabetes was difficult to manage before Best and Taylor discovered insulin and there were a few medications and surgery was full of risks. However advances in Medicine have made things possible which were not possible before.

Usually the tumors are diagnosed early and if cancerous, measures like resection/surgery followed by chemo therapy and radiation therapy depending on the nature of cancer are given and depending on the nature of cancer the survival rates are good. There are always risks for any kind of surgery including heart surgery but it has become relatively safer then before.

Yes - if he's getting chemotherapy - then it's cancer. If it was a benign tumor they woudln't treat it that way. But cancers aren't the death sentence they once were. And apparently they can do these heart surgeries in their sleep now...

My question would be... how the heck is he going to pay for all this?? I guess for those of us without insurance, these would be a death sentence.
