Stomach Cancer

The stomach is a sac-like organ which is a part of the digestive system. It lies just under the diaphragm or the sheet of muscle under the lungs. The top of the stomach is connected to the esophagus or the food pipe and the other end of it is connected to the duodenum which is the first part of the small intestine.

When cancer cells form in the inner lining of the stomach, it is known as stomach cancer or gastric cancer. It is a very aggressive form of cancer, which grows rapidly over few months and usually gets diagnosed at an advanced stage. About 8 out of 10 (80%) people who are diagnosed with stomach cancer are in the fourth stage. Over 50% of the patients with stomach cancer have cancer spread to the peritoneum or peritoneal cancer. In medical terms, this is called gastric peritoneal metastases.

Which patients with stomach cancer are prone to developing peritoneal cancer spread?

  • Presence of free cancer cells in the peritoneal fluid
  • Advanced tumor that has breached the stomach wall (T3/T4)
  • Tumor spread to the lymph nodes around the stomach
  • Poorly differentiated tumors
  • Signet ring cell tumors
