Caption

Stomach cancer. Light micrograph of human stomach cancer. Most of the cells seen here are cancerous, having large, irregular shapes and multiple nuclei (darker purple). Stomach (or gastric) cancer is a cancer which develops from the lining cells on the interior wall of the stomach. It is a fairly common cancer, and its formation may be linked to diet and other environmental factors. Stomach cancer needs early detection before it spreads beyond the stomach lining. Gastrectomy (removal of all or part of the stomach) is a common treatment, but in most cases the cancer is too advanced to be operable by the time it is diagnosed. Magnification unknown.
