Brief Answer:
It Depends from Case to Case

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

Stomach cancer is a very serious disease and requires aggressive treatment. Complete cure is possible in patients where cancer is found in early stage with no metastasis and no infiltration of surrounding organs.

In this case tumor can be removed together with whole stomach. If there is sign of dissemination then it can't be cured but chemotherapy and radiotherapy may prolong survival rate for few years.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wish you good health.
