Younger patients are more likely than older adults to present with advanced or metastatic disease at diagnosis. Despite these trends at presentation, younger patients tend to have a more favorable prognosis at each stage compared with their older counterparts.

Methodology: systematic review study Search methods for identification of studies. The literature search included the period through July, 2016 of the MEDLINE database. The literature searches were carried out using Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms: “Curative gastrectomy” “total gastrectomy” “partial gastrectomy” “stomach neoplasms” and “gastric cancer”. Two different reviewers carried out the search and evaluated studies independently. Conclusion: Gastric cancer is one of the most common causes of cancer-related death worldwide. Surgical resection with lymph node dissection is the only potentially curative therapy for gastric cancer.
