When living with advanced or metastatic stomach cancer or GE junction cancer…
The little things feel even bigger. So I fight even harder.See how CYRAMZA can help
CYRAMZA is used by itself or with a chemotherapy medicine called paclitaxel to treat certain kinds of stomach cancer or cancer of the area where the stomach and esophagus (food pipe) meet that is advanced or has spread to other parts of the body. The area where the stomach and esophagus meet is often called the gastroesophageal (GE) junction. CYRAMZA is for people whose stomach cancer got worse during or after certain other types of chemotherapy.
SELECT SAFETY INFORMATION
CYRAMZA may cause serious side effects, including:
Severe bleeding, including bleeding in the stomach or bowel, has happened with CYRAMZA. This can be life threatening. Tell your doctor right away if you have bleeding or symptoms of bleeding, including lightheadedness. If severe bleeding happens, you will have to stop receiving CYRAMZA.
Understanding your condition
Stomach cancer and gastroesophageal (GE) junction cancer are cancers that start in your stomach or GE junction (the place where your stomach meets with your esophagus). Stomach cancer can sometimes be referred to as 'gastric cancer'.
The signs and symptoms of stomach cancer and GE junction cancer can often be difficult to detect. The early stages don’t typically cause symptoms—and in later stages, symptoms may be very similar to those that might appear with another condition, like a stomach virus or ulcer.
