Caption: Stomach cancer. Axial computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen of a patient with an adenocarcinoma of the stomach (black area, top right). This is a malignant (cancerous) tumour arising from the glandular epithelium in the stomach lining. Risk of developing stomach cancer increases with age and the consumption of salty or pickled foods. The tumour may metastasise (spread) to other parts of the body. Prognosis is poor, as stomach tumours often cause no symptoms until they are advanced.
