      First of all, it depends on the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis. Treatment of stomach cancer depends to a large degree on where the cancer started in the stomach and how far it has spread. So it depends on different factors if particular case can be cured.

      The best way to verify stomach cancer is biopsy performed via upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. The biopsy sample may be tested in immunohistochemistry (IHC) or fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH).
      Other test such as CT or MRI scan, laparoscopy, chest X-ray may be included if it’s necessary.
