Core Tip Few studies have compared the characteristics and prognosis of gastric cancer among younger, middle-aged and elderly patients. Elderly patients have distinctive properties, and we have to treat them individually with particular care. We found that age ≥ 70 years was an independent prognostic factor for patients with gastric cancer after gastrectomy and these patients had distinctive characteristics of male predominance, larger tumor size, more histological differentiation, higher number of tumors located in the upper third of the stomach, and advanced tumor-node-metastasis stage, but less distant metastasis compared to younger and middle-aged patients.
