Answer

In the United States, gastric cancer represents 1.5% of all new cancer cases but 1.8% of cancer deaths. The overall 5-year relative survival rate, which was 14.3% in 1975, rose to 31.0% by 2008-2014. [2]  The 5-year observed survival rate for surgically treated gastric cancer ranges from 94% for patients with stage IA disease to 82% for stage IIA, 54% for stage IIIA, to 18% for stage IIIC. [11]
