Stomach cancer

By Charles Bailey

Abstract

Stomach cancer is usually an adenocarcinoma arising in the stomach and includes tumours arising at or just below the gastro-oesophageal junction (type II and III junctional tumours). Only non-metastatic stomach cancers are considered in this review. The incidence varies among countries and by gender, with about 80 cases a year per 100,000 in Japanese men, 30/100,000 in Japanese women, 18/100,000 in British men, and 10/100,000 in British women
