It is hard to find stomach cancer in its early stage because there often are no symptoms. When the symptoms do occur, they can be vague, and people often ignore them. Stomach Cancer Symptoms usually arrive late because of the large capacity of the stomach. Anyone who feels full after eating a small amount should have an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy to rule out cancer.
Stomach Cancer Symptoms include:
• indigestion or a burning sensation like heartburn
• discomfort or pain in the abdomen
• nausea and vomiting
• diarrhea or constipation
• bloating of the stomach after meals
• loss of appetite
• weakness and fatigue
• vomiting blood or passing blood in the stool
These symptoms also are typical of any number of other gastrointestinal conditions, so they all need to be ruled out.
