Redness in stomach

Gastric
can mean inflammation or gastritis. The most common cause of inflammation is H. pylori infection. Redness also occurs in reactive mucosa usually from taking aspirin or NSAIDs. These two account for the vast majority of gastric erosions/inflammation.

Most stomach cancers are characterized by raised and thickened ulcer margins which you apparently don't have. Other cancers there are associated with blood disorders like lymphomas and have gastric thickening. Based on this cancer isn't likely but again, the bx gives more info..

Endoscopy result (antral Gastritis) and dr. said it is GERd and prescribed Rabeprozole(no fix). Antrum shows diffuse gastric erosions. D1 & D2 Normal.?

Not GERD

Gastroesophageal_reflux_disease
GERD typically causes heartburn and regurgitation. It can also cause inflammation in the esophagus, but NOT the stomach. Amtrak gastritis can have many causes, but GERD is not one of them. Call your GI doctor for clarification.

If a large fungating signet ring cell mass is discovered in the gastric antrum blocking the pyloric canal in a 24-year-old female. Stage IV with metastasis to omentum. Was it was there 1 year earlier?

Aggressive cancer

Metastasis
Nobody knows for how long a large mass has been developing , growing in your stomach and spreading to the omentum. But aggressive cancer like this can grow quite rapidly. Signet cell ca was more likely to be found at a later stage, and more likely to have lymph node spread and metastasis on diagnosis- likely because their aggressiveness- compared to other types of stomach cancer.
