Gastric cancer – also known as cancer of the stomach or digestive tract – is the second-leading cause of cancer death worldwide, with about 1 million new cases and approximately 750,000 deaths per year. In the United States, 21,000 new cases are diagnosed per year, with nearly 10,500 deaths annually.
