Gastric cancer is the most common gastrointestinal cancer and the third leading cause of death in men and the third most common cancer among women in the past two decades in Iran. Analysis on the relevant factors can result in better performance of the healthcare system in order to reduce the risk of this disease and improve public health. Due to the difference in the prevalence of this disease in various regions, this study tries to discover the spatial statics on stomach cancer, and to identify critical areas in metropolitan Tehran, to analyze the possible relations of getting gastric cancer with living in different areas of Tehran. The results showed that there is a higher risk of stomach cancer in south and central regions of Tehran that suffer higher levels of carcinogens in water and air.

Keywords: Spatial Analysis, Chronological Analysis, Stomach Cancer, Moran local Index
