Bottom Line: This change may be initiated by external agents and genetic factors.Lung, stomach, liver, colon and breast cancer cause the most cancer deaths each year.In this review, different aspects of gastric cancer; including clinical, pathological characteristic of gastric cancer, etiology, incidence, risk factors, prevention and treatment are studied.

ABSTRACT
Cancer starts with a change in one single cell. This change may be initiated by external agents and genetic factors. Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and accounts for 7.6 million deaths (around 13% of all deaths) in 2008. Lung, stomach, liver, colon and breast cancer cause the most cancer deaths each year. In this review, different aspects of gastric cancer; including clinical, pathological characteristic of gastric cancer, etiology, incidence, risk factors, prevention and treatment are studied.

Morphological and cellular illustrations related to gastric cancer. A suspicious stomach ulcer that was diagnosed as cancer on biopsy and resected (a). Tumor cells fill the lamina propria, leaving benign glands largely undisturbed (b). Tumor cells infiltrate the muscularis propria (c). In diffuse-type carcinoma, glandular structures are abortive (d).

Figure 0001: Morphological and cellular illustrations related to gastric cancer. A suspicious stomach ulcer that was diagnosed as cancer on biopsy and resected (a). Tumor cells fill the lamina propria, leaving benign glands largely undisturbed (b). Tumor cells infiltrate the muscularis propria (c). In diffuse-type carcinoma, glandular structures are abortive (d).

Mentions: In practice, confident differentiation of benign ulcers from malignant ulcers requires microscopic examination of biopsies in many cases (16). On microscopic examination, gastric cancer is divided into two main types: well-differentiated, intestinal type and undifferentiated, diffuse type (17) (Figure 1).
