Stomach (Gastric) Cancer

Stomach cancer, sometimes referred to as gastric cancer, is a type of cancer that occurs in the stomach, the muscular sac located in the upper middle of the abdomen just below the ribs.

Common symptoms of stomach cancer include bloating, nausea, vomiting, unintentional weight loss, and feeling full quickly after starting a meal.

Doctors in the GW Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Cancer Program may treat stomach cancer using a combination of immunotherapies, minimally invasive robotic surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, depending on the patient’s needs.
