Gastric Cancer Treatment (PDQ®): Treatment - Health Professional Information [NCI] - Stage 0 Gastric Cancer
Standard treatment options:
Stage 0 is gastric cancer confined to mucosa. Experience in Japan, where stage 0 is diagnosed frequently, indicates that more than 90% of patients treated by gastrectomy with lymphadenectomy will survive beyond 5 years. An American series has confirmed these results.
There are three main types of skin cancer:
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC).

Nonmelanoma skin cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in the United...
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's list of cancer clinical trials that are now accepting patients with stage 0 gastric cancer. The list of clinical trials can be further narrowed by location, drug, intervention, and other criteria.
General information about clinical trials is also available from the NCI Web site.
