The stomach is a muscular pouch that lies immediately below your ribs in the upper part of your abdomen. Your stomach takes in and holds the food you eat before breaking it down and digesting it. Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, develops when aberrant cells divide and grow at an abnormally fast rate, resulting in a tumor mass in the stomach lining. Stomach cancer usually has no early symptoms and grows over a long period of time. As a result, it goes undiagnosed in its early phases. It goes untreated until it spreads to other sections of the stomach or to distant parts of the body.
