More younger people are developing stomach cancer — especially latina women.
That’s according to a new study coming out of Mexico today.
Researchers looked at 2,000 people diagnosed with gastric cancer over a 12-year period.
One in seven of the patients were under 40 and over half were women.
Women also tended to be diagnosed at a more advanced stage And had a worse prognosis compared to men.
The scientists say younger people with chronic indigestion, heartburn or other gastric symptoms should talk to their doctor.
