Statistics About Stomach Cancer

Some people use statistics to try to figure out their chances of getting cancer. People may also use them to try to figure out their chance of being cured of cancer. It is important to keep in mind, however, that statistics show what happens with large groups of people. Because no two people are alike, you can't use statistics to know or predict what will happen to you.

These are 2014 statistics from the American Cancer Society about stomach cancer in the United States:

  • About 22,220 people will be told they have stomach cancer this year.
