Cancer is caused due to abnormal cell growth in an uncontrolled manner, with the potential to spread or invade other parts of the body. Initiation of cancer takes place when changes in the gene make a single cell or a few cells to grow and multiply. This could result in the growth of the abnormal mass of tissue known as a tumor. Gastric cancer, also known as stomach cancer, is the formation of cancer cells in the lining of the stomach. Risk factors for gastric cancer include diet and stomach disease. Symptoms of gastric cancer are indigestion and stomach pain or discomfort. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) of the U.S. estimated that there would be 28,000 new cases of stomach cancer in 2017. It also estimated that gastric cancer accounts for 1.7% of the new cancer cases in the U.S.
Increase in incidence of gastrointestinal tumors, lymphoma, and adenocarcinoma, a rise in alcohol consumption, surge in smoking, an increase in the geriatric population is anticipated to boost the growth of the global Gastric Cancer Testing Market from 2018 to 2026. However, stringent government regulations and the high cost of testing are projected to hamper the growth of the gastric cancer testing market.
In terms of test type, the global gastric cancer testing market can be segmented into computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan, chest X-ray, imaging tests, Helicobacter pylori test, laparoscopy, positron emission tomography (PET) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and upper gastrointestinal (GI) series. Based on gastric cancer type, the gastric cancer testing market can be divided into lymphoma, adenocarcinoma, carcinoid tumor, and gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST). In terms of end-user, the global gastric cancer testing market can be classified into hospitals, diagnostic centers, and others
