The incidence of gastric cancer in India is low compared to developed countries, though there are certain geographical areas (Southern part and northeastern states of country) where the incidence is comparable to high-incidence areas of world. Despite the large number of patients being treated for gastric cancer, there are not sufficient publications discussing associated risk factors and outcomes in these patients. This article discusses relevant Indian epidemiological and clinical studies about gastric cancers. This article also highlights the gap in publication from India and developed countries regarding gastric cancer and stresses on collaborative efforts of the Indian scientific community to conduct epidemiological, pathological, and clinical studies to have a new standard of care for Indian patients.
