Abstract

Gastric (stomach) cancer, the most frequently occurring cancer and second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths, accounts for 24.2 % of cancer deaths worldwide [1-3]. Adenocarcinoma accounts for the vast majority of gastric cancer cases, with the remaining minority consisting of lymphoma, sarcoma, carcinoid tumor, and squamous cell carcinoma; the treatment information in this chapter focuses only on adenocarcinoma, whereas the survival curves include patients with all histologies.
