Oncologist, Radiation 's  Response
Hi there, Linitis plastica is a very aggressive form of stomach cancer and has a poor prognosis. Surgery remains the main treatment but is a challenging option. Chemotherapy or radiotherapy may be offered but would give short lasting relief and palliation at best. Report to regional cancer centre of your area. Take care
