The prognostic factors affecting long term survival are a little different between the patients with EGC and AGC. Age of more than 60 years is one of the prognostic factors affecting long term survival in patients with EGC, but not with AGC. In AGC, lymphovascular invasion and tumor depth are prognostic factors but not in EGC.
