Dr. Andrew Turrisi answered:

Stomach cancer?

Gastric tumor

Cancer
Confined to the stomach, intestinal type has a better outlook than signet ring, and MALT (lymphoma) and GIST have very favorable outlooks. Get a team to look with endoscopy, ultrasound to proble for depth and adjacent nodes,CT's to see anatomic spread, and surgery. Some are offering chemotherapy before, and even chemoradiotherapy before, most after. Good luck.
