      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.
