Abstract

From 1976 to 1992, a total of 358 cases of mucosal early gastric cancer (m-cancer) were treated by resection in the First Department of Surgery, Kurume University Hospital. Eight (2.2%) of these 358 cases of m-cancer were associated with lymph node metastasis. In these 358 cases, the mean diameter of the tumor was 2.75 cm, and the mean age was 59.6 years. In the 8 cases of m-cancer with positive lymph node metastasis (n (+)), the mean diameter was 5.2 cm and the mean age was 51.6 years. Seven (87.5%) out of the 8 cases of m-cancer with n (+) were IIc macroscopic cancer type and were associated with ulcer and/or ulcer scar.
