Symptoms of stomach cancer

Posted Jun 02 2009 4:38pm

The symptoms of stomach cancer may include any of the following:

  • indigestion that does not go away
  • losing your appetite
  • difficulty in swallowing
  • losing weight
  • a bloated feeling after eating
  • feeling sick (nausea) or being sick (vomiting)
  • heartburn
  • blood in the stools (bowel motion) or black stools
  • tiredness due to anaemia (from bleeding from the wall of the stomach)

Many of the symptoms described above are common to conditions other than cancer of the stomach. Most people who see their doctor with these symptoms will not have cancer. However, it is important to have them checked so that further tests can be done if necessary.
