Abstract

IntroductionBoth the morbidity and mortality of gastric cancer (GC) are higher in developing countries than in developed countries. GC is also associated with a low long‐term survival rate and is the third leading cause of cancer‐related death worldwide. Because of the lack of widespread screening, many patients, especially those in lower socioeconomic regions, are diagnosed with advanced GC. According to estimates, approximately 990 000 people worldwide are diagnosed with GC each year, and approximately 738 000 die from the disease. The 5‐year survival rate is still dismal in the USA, whereas the incidence of GC has been on the decline.Increased attention has been focused on different races and socioeconomic status (SES) levels, not only because of their effect on the appearance and development of GC but also because of the increasing evidence of their influence on various aspects of the healthcare system of the USA. However, no recent studies with a large number of patients have reported the incidence and survival rates of GC, as analyzed by age, sex, SES, and race over a long follow‐up period. Hence, our study used a period analysis to assess the relative survival rates (RSRs) of patients with GC from the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End
