Abstract

Neoplasms of the stomach encompass both benign and malignant tumors, with more than 95% of the latter consisting of adenocarcinomas. Until approximately 1980, gastric cancer was the most common solid organ tumor in the world, and today it is eclipsed only by lung cancer in incidence and mortality.
