“Stomach cancer can happen in any part of the stomach. In most of the world, stomach cancers happen in the main part of the stomach. This part is called the stomach body.

In the United States, stomach cancer is more likely to start by the gastroesophageal junction. This is the part where the long tube that carries food you swallow meets the stomach. The tube that carries food to the stomach is called the esophagus.

There is adenocarcinoma stomach cancer,  gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST), carcinoid tumors – that are found in many area of the body that start in your neuroendocrine cells, and lymphoma is a cancer that starts in immune system cells. Most lymphomas that start in the stomach are a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”
