In brief: Yes
There is a role for radiation.
The main treatment is to resect the cancer and based on the findings and pathology there is usually recommendations for adjuvant radiation and chemotherapy depending on what a patient can tolerate. Stomach cancer can be aggressive and cure rates low but by using these combinations there is a chance for cure for those cancers that have not spread out of the stomach.
