In brief: Should not worry

The incidence of stomach cancer in your age group is very rare.
You should not worry about this. If multiple family members had stomach cancer, especially at younger age ( less than 40) -then that would be a different scenario-as hereditary diffuse cancer of the stomach has to be ruled out. If you drink alcohol and smoke cigarette, however, i would advise you to stop. Please d/w your md further.

In brief: Very rare

Gastric or stomach cancer is not common in the us, and is very unlikely under the age of 50.
See your doctor for evaluation if you have some specific concerns or issues that are not addressed in your question.
