What is Stomach Cancer?

Stomach cancer is a type of cancer characterized by abnormal and uncontrolled growth of stomach cells. Stomach cancer usually arises from the gastric mucosa, which are the cells lining the lining of the stomach. Due to genetic mutations in these cells, the normal cell cycle is disrupted and cancerous cells form. Esophageal cancer usually begins with abnormal growth of cells in the inner wall of the esophagus and turns into cancer cells over time. This type of cancer is generally more common in older ages and in men.
