Gastric cancer is a disease in which cancer cells form in the stomach lining. The stomach is present on the upper abdomen and helps to digest food.
Almost all gastric cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other types of fluids). Other types of gastric cancer are gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors, lymphomas and gastrointestinal stromal tumors. These type of cancer doesn’t cause any symptoms and it is very difficult to detect, treatment of cancer can be done by chemotherapy, radiation therapy or by surgery.
Stomach cancer occurs when normally healthy cells within the upper digestive system become cancerous and grow out of control and form a tumor. This process happens slowly so that stomach cancer tends to develop over many years.
Stomach cancer is more common among older adults (usually those 50 years and older), men, smokers, those with a family history of the disease, individuals who are of Asian (especially Korean or Japanese), South American, or Belarusian descent
