If there are already wounds, ulcers or other conditions that damage the gastric mucosa and if the appropriate exploratory tests are carried out by a specialist doctor, we can detect and try to cure these conditions before they can become malignant, or if, on the contrary, it is already diagnosed a stomach cancer onset, we can start treating it earlier at an earlier stage and it may possibly be curable.
