Stomach Cancer

22:38 EST 23rd November 2017 | BioPortfolio

Stomach cancer, or gastric cancer, is a relatively uncommon type of cancer that affects about 7,300 people each year in the UK.
The initial symptoms of stomach cancer are vague and easy to mistake for other less serious conditions. They include:

  • persistent indigestion and heartburn
  • trapped wind and frequent burping
  • feeling very full or bloated after meals
  • persistent stomach pain

Symptoms of advanced stomach cancer can include:

  • blood in your stools, or black stools
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss

As the early symptoms are similar to many conditions, stomach cancer is often advanced by the time it's diagnosed. Therefore, it's important to get any possible symptoms of stomach cancer checked out by your GP as soon as possible.
