Gastric Cancer - Symptoms

Gastric cancer often presents with non-specific symptoms such as mild abdominal discomfort or indigestion, bloating, belching, nausea, heartburn or loss of appetite. Gastric cancer may be associated with ulcers that can lead to bleeding presenting as hematemesis or melena. Stomach cancer can also cause slow chronic blood loss which may not be noticed in the stool, but may present with symptoms of anaemia such as palpitations, shortness of breath and chest discomfort. In patients with advanced gastric cancer, the tumour may cause an obstruction of the stomach leading to early satiety or vomiting.
