Stomach Cancer

There are over 27,000 new diagnoses of stomach cancer in the United States each year, resulting in just under half as many annual deaths. Adenocarcinoma, gastric sarcoma, lymphoma, and neuroendocrine tumors may all form within the stomach and be classified as stomach cancer. This disease is so deadly because of its ability to readily spread to the lymph nodes and metastasize to other locations such as the lungs, ovaries, bones, and liver.
