Stomach Cancer (Gastric Adenocarcinoma)

  • Stomach cancer is characterized by a growth of cancerous cells within the lining of the stomach.
  • Also called gastric cancer, this type of cancer is difficult to diagnose because most people typically don’t show symptoms in the earlier stages.
  • While stomach cancer is relatively rare compared to other types of cancer, one of the biggest dangers of this disease is the difficulty of diagnosing it.
  • Since stomach cancer usually doesn’t cause any early symptoms, it often goes undiagnosed until after it spreads to other parts of the body. This makes it more difficult to treat.
  • Though stomach cancer can be hard to diagnose and treat, it’s important to get the knowledge you need to beat the disease.

Long-term outlook

  • Your chances of recovery are better if the diagnosis is made in the early stages.
  • According to the NCI, around 30 percent of all people with stomach cancer survive at least five years after being diagnosed.
  • The majority of these survivors have a localized diagnosis. This means that the stomach was the original source of the cancer.
  • When the origin is unknown, it can be difficult to diagnose and stage the cancer. This makes the cancer harder to treat.
