Stomach cancer

Causes of stomach cancer
Scientists aren’t sure what causes cancer cells to develop in the stomach. However, they are aware of some factors that could increase their chance of developing the condition. One of them is infection with H. pylori, a common bacteria that causes ulcers. Gastritis, a type of long-term anemia called pernicious anemia, and growths in the stomach called polyps can
increase the risk of cancer.

Other factors that appear to contribute to risk include:

● Smoking
● Being overweight or obese
● A diet rich in smoked, pickled, or salty foods
● Drinking alcohol regularly
● Stomach surgery for an ulcer
● Blood type (A)
● Epstein-Barr virus infection
● Genetics
● Working with coal, metal, lumber or rubber industry
● Asbestos exposure
● Family history of gastric cancer
● Hereditary factors such as familial adenomatous polyposis, hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (Lynch syndrome), and Peutz-Jeghers syndrome
