What are survival odds for early stage stomach cancer? It’s stage 1, so is it likely it can be cured? Will I have to worry about it coming back?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Depends

Would need more information on tumor size, location, cell type, and surgical margins but stage 1 would have the best results & best survival statistics.
May likely need repeat endoscopy & biopsies in the future to watch.
