About Gastric Cancer

With an estimated 934,000 new cases per year (8.6% of all new cancer cases), gastric cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide, following lung, breast, and colorectal cancers. It is the second most common cause of cancer-related death, accounting for an estimated 700,000 to 800,000 deaths annually.  Nearly 70% of new cases occur in developing countries; 42% of new cases occur in China alone.

In Europe, gastric cancer is the seventh most common cancer and the sixth most common cause of cancer death, with an estimated annual mortality rate of 118,200.  In general, gastric cancer incidence rates are about twice as high among men as in women. The disease is difficult to cure unless it is diagnosed in its early stages. Unfortunately, because early gastric cancer causes few symptoms, the disease is not usually diagnosed until it has reached an advanced stage. In Europe, the five-year survival rate for gastric cancer is roughly 20% in men and 25% in women. Similarly, in the United States, the five-year survival rate for gastric cancer is 24%, though survival rates improve to 61% if the disease is detected early. However, less than one-quarter of gastric cancers are diagnosed at an early stage in the United States.  In contrast, the five-year survival rate exceeds 50% in Japan, where early gastric cancer is diagnosed relatively frequently due to mass screening efforts, which have been practiced since the 1960s.
