Stomach Cancer Overview

Stomach, esophageal and GE Junction cancers account for 37,600 new cancer cases in the United States each year and 25,150 deaths. Of these, it is estimated that in 2014, 22,000 Americans will be diagnosed with stomach cancer and nearly 11,000 will die of the disease.  While the incidence of stomach cancer has been dropping steadily in this country since World War II, it remains a major global health problem and is estimated to be the fourth most common cancer worldwide and the second leading cause of cancer deaths. Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, Costa Rica, Peru, Brazil, Chile, and the former Soviet Union all have a very high incidence of gastric cancer. This high incidence is believed to be related to eating a diet consisting of heavily smoked, salted, and pickled foods.
