Among cancers affecting both males and females, incidence rates in 2014 were higher among males than among females for colorectal cancer (44.1 per 100,000 versus 33.7 per 100,000), kidney cancer (20.9 versus 10.6), pancreatic cancer (14.4 versus 11.1), liver cancer (11.2 versus 3.4), adenocarcinoma of the esophagus (5.4 versus 0.8), multiple myeloma (7.5 versus 4.9), and gastric cardia cancer (3.6 versus 0.8) (Table 2).

Advanced adenocarcinomas are usually infiltrating lesions that narrow the lumen and, unlike squamous cell carcinomas, have a marked tendency to invade the gastric cardia and fundus.
17 November 2014 - A study published Friday in the open access, peer-reviewed online journal Molecular Cancer, seeking to establish the E3 ubiquitin ligase Nedd4-1 as a prognostic biomarker to predict the survival and guide the treatment of gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) patients, found that Nedd4-1 is an exceptional prognostic biomarker for GCA and that it may play a vital role in GCA metastasis.

Stretta is a non-ablative RF treatment that remodels the musculature of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and gastric cardia to significantly improve the antireflux barrier and reduce the frequency of transient lower sphincter relaxations (tLESRs) and reflux events.
BACKGROUND: The causes of adenocarcinomas of the esophagus and gastric cardia are poorly understood.
It has been estimated that the infection with this bacterium is responsible for 77% of the cases of distal gastric cancer and is associated with both types, intestinal and diffuse, but not with carcinomas originating in the gastric cardia (9).
