Stomach adenocarcinoma has been a major source of malignant development through the greater part of the 20th century. In different parts of the world, the prevalence of this disease has decreased, mostly due to changes in diet and some other natural constituents. Aim: To examine the clinical pathology of patients with proximal and distal gastric adenocarcinomas. Methodology: This was the prospective work carried out with gastric adenocarcinoma patients treated at Sree Balaji Medical College and

In endoscopy, biopsies will be taken from the lesion and biopsies were subjected to histopathological examination. Results: The most striking epidemiologic perceptions were the increasing frequency of adenocarcinomas of the proximal stomach and distal throat. We found that the occurrence of proximal gastric adenocarcinomas isn't expanding in our populace when contrasted with the rising rate of such proximal tumors in the Western Hemisphere. Conclusion: In our investigation distal gastric adenocarcinomas were a more incessant finding than the proximal gastric adenocarcinomas.
