Gastric Adenocarcinoma, more commonly known as Gastric Cancer or Stomach Cancer, is a disease in which malignant cancer cells form inside the lining of the stomach. While many types of cancers are on the increase, stomach cancer rates have actually decreased in the United States, possibly attributed to changing eating habits as people tend to eat less salted, smoked and cured food and are more mindful of adding fruits and vegetables to their diets. Like most cancers, a patient’s prognosis of gastric cancer is generally determined by how far the cancerous cells have travelled within the body, how far the tumor has infiltrated into the stomach walls, or whether the cancer has gone beyond the layers of the stomach. Cancer that occurs in the lower stomach is more treatable and therefore more curable than cancer found in the upper regions of the stomach.
