Stomach cancer is also called gastric cancer. It’s more common in older people and in men.
The stomach is part of the digestive system. It stores food and helps to break food down so our body can absorb it.
It’s a worrying time for many people and we want to be there for you whenever - and wherever - you need us. Cancer Chat is our fully moderated forum where you can talk to others affected by cancer, share experiences, and get support. Cancer Chat is free to join and available 24 hours a day.
