There are two main types of stomach cancer. These are named after the cell type in which the cancer first develops:
- Gastric adenocarcinoma (gastric cancer) develops in the glandular cells that line the stomach wall.
- Gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST) are rarer cancers that develop in the connective tissue in the stomach wall.
