Epidemiologic characteristics of gastric malignancies among Jordan University Hospital patients.

Conclusion: Jordan is a low-risk area for gastric cancer, but carcinoma occurs at a young age and is associated with gastritis, Helicobacter pylori infection, and intestinal metaplasia in a large proportion of cases. Better strategic health planning and early detection is needed, especially in young patients suffering from gastritis. PMID: 28889157 [PubMed - in process]
