In brief: Depends on ethnicity

Stomach cancer is not a common cancer type in the US.
The rate is 7.7 per 100, 000 men and women per year. However, it is higher in Asians, especially Japanese. Very spicy foods, macrocytic anemia, intestinal metaplasia, Helicobacter pylori infections are potential risk factors for increased risk of gastric cancer.
