Types of Stomach Cancer

Virtually all stomach cancers are adenocarcinomas, meaning that the cancer begins in the glandular tissue that lines the inside of the stomach. Adenocarcinomas are further classified as either intestinal or diffuse. This is important because the classification influences the treatment and outcome of the disease.

Types of Stomach Cancer

Other Cancers of the Stomach

  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) - Abnormal growth of the connective tissues of the stomach wall
  • Lymphoma - Uncontrolled growth of the immune cells of the stomach
  • Carcinoid tumors - cancer of the hormone-producing cells of the stomach
  • Linitis Plastica - a rare type of stomach cancer that begins in the lining of the stomach and spreads to the muscles of the stomach wall. This causes the wall of the stomach to become thick, hard, and rubbery, which leads to trouble digesting food. This is also called gastric scirrhous carcinoma.
