2E60.2/D00.2 Carcinoma in situ of stomach



Carcinoma in situ of the stomach is an early form of cancer that occurs when the cells lining the stomach start to grow and divide uncontrollably. It is usually caused by environmental factors such as diet, smoking, and exposure to certain chemicals or viruses.


Diagnosis of carcinoma in situ of the stomach is usually made through imaging tests such as endoscopy, CT scan, or magnetic resonance imaging. A biopsy of the affected area may also be taken to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis of carcinoma in situ of the stomach includes other types of cancer, such as adenocarcinoma, lymphoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.


Treatment for carcinoma in situ of the stomach usually involves surgery to remove the affected area, as well as chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. In some cases, endoscopic mucosal resection may also be used to remove the cancer.


The prognosis for carcinoma in situ of the stomach depends on the size and location of the tumor, as well as the patient’s overall health. Generally, the prognosis is good if the tumor is caught early and treated promptly.
