Carcinoma of the stomach is a global disease with the highest incidence in Asia, South America and Eastern Europe. The disease is least common in USA and Western Europe [1]. The disease is common among smokers. Other risk factors are H. pylori infection, atrophic gastritis, Menetrier’s disease and previous gastrectomy. The disease can be genetic as in familial adenomatous polyposis, hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer, Peutz-Jegher’s syndrome, etc. [2]. Screening for gastric carcinoma is done in high incidence areas such as Japan, Korea and China.
