Stomach cancer is a disease in which normal cells in the stomach tissues become cancerous and grow out of control.
Experts have been unable to define one primary cause for stomach cancer, but many factors seem to be involved. Some research suggests that stomach ulcers or stomach polyps can lead to cancer.
- Stomach ulcers are raw or inflamed areas of the stomach lining and also are called gastric ulcers
- Stomach polyps are noncancerous round growths that project into the stomach cavity
Environmental factors or infection by the bacteria Helicobacter pylori may be possible causes. Poor diet has also been implicated.

The symptoms of stomach cancer in the early stages can be vague and include indigestion, discomfort, nausea, or heartburn. Early symptoms are also symptomatic of many other gastrointestinal conditions (pertaining to the digestive tract), so having symptoms does not necessarily mean stomach cancer.
Treatment varies by individual, but may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, biological therapy, or participation in clinical trials.
