High Resolution Images: Gastric Cancer of the Diffuse Type in Antrum
The endoscopic images in this site are mostly quite compressed in order to make the transmissions times as short as possible. Sometimes it is however nice to have high resolution images, for example for publications, text books or lectures. In these "high resolution files" some larger images are displayed.
Just click on any image to get a magnification (and then click "Back" on Your browser). Click here to get back to the index page.
Gastric cancer can be divided into two groups according to the Lauren classification. Of all gastric adenocarcinomas, 30 - 40% are of the diffuse type. This type of cancer in the stomach is somewhat more common in younger patients, it is as usual in men as in women, it often forms a malignant ulcer in the stomach and Helicobacter pylori does not have any important etiologic significance. Blood group A is a small riskfactor conserning gastric cancer of the diffuse type. A gastric cancer of this type can form a "linitis plastica"-type tumour.
The intestinal type is somewhat more common than the diffuse type. The patients are usually older, more men get this disease, it forms a typical visible tumour in the stomach, and Helicobacter pylori is an important etiologic factor, a person with Hp-infection has a 6-time high possibility of getting this disease.
