Irregularity and significant mass effects are seen at the gastric fundus and body, suggesting tumoral infiltration. Mild mucosal abnormality is also observed at the distal esophagus, esophagogastric junction and gastric cardia.

In addition, mass like opacities are seen in the visualized portion of the lungs, suspected of metastasis.

Regarding barium study findings, CXR was performed for more evaluation.
