Stomach Cancer


Stomach cancer starts generally in the innermost lining called mucosa of the stomach. About 5-10% of the stomach cancer starts in the sub-mucosa which is a supporting layer of mucosa. These are the only layers from where the stomach cancer starts and these layers can only determine the stage of our stomach cancer. When the cells generate in the stomach and becomes tumour then Stomach Cancer occurs.
