Gastric cancer is one of the most common malignant tumors in the world, and its morbidity and mortality is the third among the most malignant tumors. In China, the incidence and mortality of gastric cancer in urban are obviously different from those in rural areas, and rural incidence is higher than that of cities. Western medicine has great side effects and is expensive. The combination of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine is not only effective, but also alleviates the economic burden. TCM pays attention to the centralizer with exorcism, adjusting the balance of the body on the one hand to make tumor growth slow down, it even reduces tumors on the other hand to make the body adapt to the new internal environment, minimizing the damage tumor brings to the body. Thus, the goals of improving the survival quality of patients, alleviating the pain of patients, lengthening the life of patients and delaying the development of tumor are achieved. This paper briefly reviews the research of treatment on gastric cancer from the aspects of western medicine： gastric cancer pathogenesis and classification, clinical manifestation, treatment （surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, preoperative chemoradiotherapy, postoperative radiation and chemotherapy, targeted therapy） and TCM treatment： the etiology and pathogenesis of gastric cancer and syndrome differentiation, clinical experience, and classic cases of Professor Gao Ping are discussed.
