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.
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.

The Best Image Library in the World!

That is what we would like Gastrolab Image Library and Endoscopic Archives to be.

Perhaps We can achieve this together? Many of You have ecxellent endoscopic images just waiting for publication. When published they can be an invaluable resource for young endoscopists and for gastroenterologic education. Images published here can freely be used for noncommercial purposes.

So, please email Your images here
together with a short caption, a notice that our site is permitted to publish them and information if You want a copyright sign together with You email address (in which case possible commercial publishers can contact You to get permission to publish Your images).

Together we can make the best and most complete Image Library in the World!
