[Correspondence] The challenge of screening for early gastric cancer in China

An estimated 679 100 new cases of gastric cancer are diagnosed in China each year.1 Gastric cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women in China, and 5 year survival of gastric cancer is low because more than 80% of patients are diagnosed at an advanced stage. About 498 000 Chinese people are estimated to have died from gastric cancer in 2015; roughly 1364 deaths per day.1
