Types of Stomach Cancer: Lymphoma

A friend of mine was asking me about stomach cancer today. Apparently, one of her co-worker’s husband was diagnosed this week with a type of lymphoma near his stomach. These are cancers of immune system tissue in the stomach wall. Some lymphomas are aggressive, whereas others grow much more slowly. The latter, known medically as mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphomas, usually stem from H. pylori infection and are often curable when found in the early stages. The family doesn’t have enough information at this point to know what type of lymphoma this is. You can click on the stomach cancer link on the right side of this site for more information. Mayo clinic also offers a good, basic overview of stomach cancer and treatment. That is where I did my reading today. I will keep you updated if and when I get more information.
