CancerBro, what are the stomach cancer symptoms.
That’s a very good question. A knowledge about the symptoms is required to consult doctor earliest before the disease becomes very advanced.
The most common symptom of stomach cancer is upper abdominal discomfort or pain. Also, weight loss is seen in the majority of patients.
Loss of appetite, early satiety and vomiting is also a common symptom.
Less commonly we may see an abdominal mass or distention, or jaundice due to the local extension or distant spread to other abdominal structures.
Rarely; a distant spread of the tumor may present as nodules near the umbilicus, or in the neck.
Anyone or combination of these symptoms is highly suspicious for stomach cancer, especially when it is present in a person with risk factors for disease.
