Abstract :

 

Objectives: This  study  is to  make  a  observation  of  incidence  and  diagnosis  of  gastric  cancer  in  a  newly  built  state Jharkhand.

Meterial  and  method: This  observational  study  was  carried  out  in  Rajendra institute  of  Medical  sciences,Ranchi, department  of  General surgery  from  April 2007  to October  2008. Fifty patients (M:F=2.12:1) of  gastric  cancer  admitted through   outdoor, emergency, and rererred  from  medical  ward  were  included  in  the  study.

Results: Fifty  patients  of  gastric  cancer, ranged  between 3rd to 7th decades   of  life, more common  in  non–tribal male of  low  socio–economic  group  addicted  to smoking, tobacco  chewing  and  taking  alcohol  admitted  to  the  hospital  with  vomiting  as  their  first  complains, followed  by  anorexia, weight  loss,  epigastric  mass, pain  abdomen and  dyspepsia. Upper G.I endoscopy  confirmed  by  histopathological  examination  was found  to  be  the  best  method  to  diagnose  gastric  cancer. Adenocarcinoma  was the  commonest  amongst  all  the  histological types of  gastric  cancer  and  antral  polypoidal  growth  was  noticed  in  maximum  number  of  cases.

Conclusion: The  present  study  leads  to  inference  that, gastric  cancer  is  more  common  in  distal  stomach  in  our  part  of  country and  adenocarcinima  is  the  commonest  histological  type encountered.
