Stomach Cancer Causes

Your risk for developing stomach cancer is higher if you have:

  • A family history of stomach cancers
  • A helicobacter pylori infection (a type of bacterial infection)
  • A polyp in the stomach longer than 2 centimeters
  • Chronic stomach inflammation
  • Stomach Swelling
  • Anemia
  • A diet high in smoked, pickled, and salted foods

Smoking also increases your risk of cancer. Obese people may have an increased risk for developing cancer in the upper stomach.
