In Japan, the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) and esophagogastric junction (EGJ) adenocarcinoma is expected to increase and that of gastric adenocarcinoma (GAC) is expected to decrease due to Westernization of the diet and the decreasing prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection. However, few reports about these trends have included the latest data, and no reports about the time trend in the incidence of EGJ adenocarcinoma have focused on the etiologies (gastric cardia adenocarcinoma or EAC, including Barrett's adenocarcinoma). We therefore investigated the time trends in the incidence of these cancers by including the latest data.
