For some reason stomach cancer rates are higher in Japan.  The doctor's there are very knowledgeable about how to do deal with it.  There are different types of stomach cancer with signet ring being the worst.  Cancer that has moved out of the abdominal area into the pelvic region is considered stage 4.  Typical regimen is for chemotherapy for 6 months and then look at more options such as surgery, HIPEC procedure, immunotherapy or clinical trials.
