Stomach Cancer Symptoms

Because many symptoms of stomach cancer are commonly experienced and may be indicative of a stomach virus or other minor condition, people suffering from them may be hesitant to seek medical advice, opting instead to ignore the symptoms. Even though a stomach cancer diagnosis is unlikely in most cases, individuals should contact a doctor when they consistently experience the following:

  • Abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Loss of appetite
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Bloating
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Feeling of fullness after eating small amounts of food
  • Bloody or black stools
  • Fatigue
  • Unintentional weight loss
