Gastric Cancer / Cancer Of The Stomach

Gastric cancer (cancer of the stomach) is most often found in people over age 55. Statistics have shown that men are more susceptible than women, and black more than whites. In India, approximately 24,000 new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed each year and about 700,000 new cases diagnosed worldwide. 

Medindia’s support group hosts additional information on this form of cancer, its prognosis and treatment options.
