Best Answer

Yes, unfortunately it is possible though highly unlikely for a teenager to get stomach cancer. I knew 2 people who had stomach cancer at a very young age one was a good friend. They were 21 and 26 respectively. Jeremy (21) was diagnosed with a very developed stage and only lived a very short 6 weeks. He played hockey in the OHL and was a draft prospect for the Pittsburgh Penguins, he was very healthy and never complained about any discomfort in his abdomen. Kevin (26) was also very healthy, playing Basketball, I believe that he was originally diagnosed with an ulcer originally after additional testing he was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Kevin lived with the disease for close to 6 months before passing away. It is very hard to predict and diagnose stomach cancer, or any cancer in young people for that matter, as it is very rare.

How can a teenager get cancer?

A teenager can get cancer the same way as kids and adults. There just hasn't been a clear answer of how cancer comes about (which explains the lack of cures for cancer), so I can't exactly tell you how anyone can get cancer. Staying healthy or unhealthy doesn't prove that you can get cancer. Some people who are normal, really healthy or unhealthy can all get cancer.
