The exact cause of stomach cancer is unknown, but a number of factors can increase the risk of the disease, including:

Gender -- men have more than double the risk of getting stomach cancer than women.

Race -- being African-American or Asian may increase your risk.

Genetics -- genetic abnormalities and some inherited cancer syndromes may increase your risk

Geography -- stomach cancer is more common in Japan, the former Soviet Union, and parts of Central America and South America.

Blood type -- individuals with blood group A may be at increased risk.

Advanced age -- stomach cancer occurs more often around ages 70 and 74 in men and women, respectively.

Family history of gastric cancer can double or triple the risk of stomach cancer.

Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, and eating a diet low in fruits and vegetables or high in salted, smoked, or nitrate-preserved foods may increase your risk

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection of the stomach. H. pylori is a bacterium that infects the lining of the stomach and causes chronic inflammation and ulcers.

Certain health conditions including chronic gastritis, pernicious anemia, gastric polyps, intestinal metaplasia, and prior stomach surgery.

Work-related exposure due to coal mining, nickel refining, and rubber and timber processing and asbestos exposure.

Nexium and prolosec increase Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection of the stomach when stopping the drug.

The shut down of the stomach pump allows food to rot without being processed and thus the Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection of the stomach happens and can cause misery in sickness and hospitalization.

I use Probiotic (Acidophilus) for good bacteria and its works without the pharmaceutical threat and hospitalization mentioned above to my health.
