Stomach cancer and stomach cancer the silent killer: Here are the signs and symptoms

Early-stage stomach cancer (stomach cancer) rarely causes symptoms. In countries where screening for stomach cancer is not routine, such as the United States, most stomach cancers are not found until they have grown somewhat or spread outside the stomach.
When stomach cancer causes signs and symptoms, they can include:
• Poor appetite
lose weight (without trying)
• Stomach ache
Unexplained pain in the abdomen, usually above the navel
• A feeling of fullness after eating only a small meal
Heartburn or indigestion
• nausea
Vomiting with or without blood
Swelling or fluid buildup in the abdomen
• blood in the stool
Feeling tired or weak due to a low number of red blood cells (anemia)
• Yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice) if the cancer has spread to the liver
Most of these symptoms are likely to be caused by things other than stomach cancer, such as a viral infection or ulcer. Some of these symptoms may also be caused by other types of cancer. But people who have any of these problems, especially if they do not go away or are getting worse, should see a doctor to find out the cause and treat it, if necessary.
