In brief: Yes, unsure stat

Chronic h. Pylori infection/gastritis can cause a type of gastric tumor called malt--mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, but the incidence is not known.
Long term gastritis by other causes also increase risk of gastric cancer, just as in folks with chronic reflux causing esophagitis/barrett's esophagus etc.. Which increases cancer risks. So, follow up with doc regularly. Good luck.

In brief: Possibly

Any type of chronic irritation can cause enough changes that lead to cancer.
Patients with bile reflux, especially those with surgically created reflux conditions can get cancer. See your gastroenterologist to determine the cause and the right treatment.
