Health Matters: GI Cancer Prevention, Screenings and Treatment with Dr. David Litvak, surgical oncologist and Dr. Amar Podugu, gastroenterologist
Gastrointestinal cancers are usually found when a person goes to the doctor after experiencing signs or symptoms, according to the American Cancer Society. These types of GI cancers can include liver, pancreas, colon and beyond. The process of detection typically begins with the doctor taking a history and examining the patient. If cancer is suspected, tests will then begin in order to confirm the diagnosis. However, as in most cancers, early detection is key. Our guests are Dr. David Litvak, surgical oncologist with Aultman Medical Group and Dr. Amar Podugu, gastroenterologist with Gastroenterology Specialists.
