Avoid the use of tobacco


Effective use of tobacco increases the risk of cancers of the proximal stomach. This is the portion of the stomach closest to the esophagus. If you don’t use tobacco, please don’t start. Tobacco is a dangerous substance. It can kill you so easily and quick. From research conducted in the United States, about one-third of all cancer deaths were as a result of tobacco use. Tobacco also increases the risk of many other types of cancer.

Use Aspirin


Medical Research has also proved that using aspirin reduces the risk of stomach cancer. Most doctors consider any reduced cancer risk an added benefit for patients who take these drugs for other reasons, such as to treat arthritis. Using aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen seems to lower the risk of stomach cancer. These medicines can also lower the risk of developing colon polyps and colon cancer. But it will be of much help if one seek a doctor’s advice before taking this medicine.
