Unfortunately...: It really depends on the total staging of the gastric cancer. "early stage" might mean something different for you and me. If you have the t stage, nodal stage, and metastasis information, it will help clarify what stage and survival rates.

MD: Stomach cancer is not terribly common in the us but it can happen so why don't you visit your doc and ask him/her about it? Maybe you need an upper endoscopy. Worrying will not help, just do it.
