Survival rate of stomach cancer stage 4?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Marianne DiNapoli
7 years experience in Obstetrics and Gynecology
4-18 months: Stage 4 stomach (gastric) cancer means the cancer has spread or metastasized to sites far from the stomach. Unfortunately, the prognosis is poor. The median range of survival for stage 4 gastric cancer is 4 - 18 months. Experimental treatment options may be available depending upon your locale.
