Some of the symptoms of stomach cancer in the early stages are:

  • Indigestion and stomach discomfort
  • A bloated feeling after eating
  • Mild nausea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Heartburn

Stomach cancer can be very difficult to diagnose because in the early stages, the symptoms can be absent or very mild. The symptoms listed above can be caused by cancer, but also by other, less serious health problems such as a virus or an ulcer.

In more advanced stages of stomach cancer, symptoms can include:

  • Blood in the stool
  • Vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Moderate to severe pain in the stomach
