Epidemiology of Gastric Cancer

Part of the Sloan-Kettering Institute Cancer Series book series (SKICS)


Like esophageal neoplasms, gastric cancers are deadly but epidemiologically intriguing. A precipitous decline in death rates from gastric cancers has occurred at a time of slowly rising mortality from all cancers. The disappearance of gastric cancer as an important clinical entity has been divined, although clues to its etiology remain scant and contradictory.
