Zali H, Rezaei-Tavirani M, Azodi M - Gastroenterol Hepatol Bed Bench (2011)

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.

Figure 0002: Illustration of gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

Mentions: As compared to the cells in intestinal-type carcinomas, diffuse carcinoma cells were smaller, more uniform in overall shape and in nuclear size, and had less mitotic activity (19). Gastric lymphoma accounts for 3%-5% of all malignant tumours of the stomach (20). Although the incidence of gastric carcinoma has been reduced, the incidence of primary gastric lymphoma is increasing (21). H. pylori play a role in the development of most MALT lymphomas (Figure 2).
