No. If anything, it would pose a reduced risk of stomach cancer relative to highly cooked foods. Highly cooked foods increase levels of HCAs, which may increase the risk of stomach cancer. The increase in risk is very slight from HCAs. A more important thing to be concerned with is the possibility of contracting a food-borne illness from consuming tainted, undercooked fish. Parasites, such as tapeworms, can also be contracted from consuming raw fish. The risk is small but real; most places serving raw fish take care to make sure that the fish is properly stored, but contracting an illness is still possible.
