Stomach cancer, light micrograph. Section of tissue from a gastric adenocarcinoma. Cancer cells (purple) can be seen proliferating. This is a malignant (cancerous) tumour arising from the epithelium in the stomach lining. Risk of developing gastric cancer increases with age and the consumption of salty or pickled foods. The tumour may readily metastasise (spread) to other parts of the body. Prognosis is poor as gastric tumours often present no symptoms until they are advanced.
