Answer

For medically fit patients with potentially resectable cT1b gastric cancer, the NCCN recommends surgery. For those with cT2 disease or higher (any N), recommendations are as follows [4] :

  • Surgery only
  • Perioperative chemotherapy with surgery (category 1) (preferred) or
  • Preoperative chemoradiation with surgery (category 2B)
