Stomach cancer is also called gastric cancer. It is cancer that occurs in your stomach. In simple terms, stomach cancer is something that incorporates cancers that have an impact on the gastrointestinal tract. This includes esophagus, gall bladder, Pancreases, rectal, colon, stomach, etc.

The stomach is an essential part of the digestive system. The stomach is a hollow organ present in the upper abdomen, just under the ribs. Food goes through the mouth through the esophagus then reaches the stomach.  The food then turns to liquid form in the stomach, which they move to the small intestine where more digestion occurs.

The stomach has five layers, and these layers are pretty significant in determining the cancer stage and treatment for stomach cancer.

  • The inner layer of the stomach: Juice that the inner layer of the stomach makes helps in the digestion of the food. Maximum stomach cancer starts in this layer.
  • Submucosa: It is the supportive tissue for the inner stomach layer.
  • Muscle layer: Muscles in these layers make a rippling motion that mixes and mashes your food.
  • Sub serosa: It is the outer layer of support tissues.
  • The outer layer of the stomach: The outer layer covers the entire abdomen and helps hold the stomach well in the position.

When the stomach cancer cells start growing from mucosa to deep layers, the stage begins to advance, and prognosis will not be good.
