Gastric stump cancer represents a malignant tumor which develops after subtotal gastrectomy was performed both for benign and malignant lesions. Worldwide gastric cancer is the second cause of death by cancer.
The clinical picture of operated stomach has nonspecific, insidious symptoms which are hard to be included in a clinical entity. Clinical diagnosis can rarely identify suspected GSC in the early stages because symptoms are missing in most cases.
