What are the symptoms of stomach cancer?
If you have any of the following symptoms please see your doctor. These symptoms may also occur for ailments other than cancer. Your doctor will advise if you need tests and where you should go to have these tests. In many instances you won’t feel anything at all. This is because stomach cancer often does not cause symptoms in the early stages. Early symptoms include a burning belly, indigestion or heartburn. Later symptoms include:
- Feeling full, even if you’ve only eaten a small meal
- Vomiting or feeling nauseous
- Blood in vomit
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Swelling of the belly
- Difficulty swallowing
- Unexplained weakness or tiredness
- Black bowel motions
