WHAT IS GASTRIC CANCER?

Gastric cancer starts in the stomach. Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body.

Gastric cancer tends to develop slowly over many years. Before cancer develops, pre-cancerous changes often occur in the lining of the stomach but rarely cause symptoms and can go undetected.
