The symptoms of stomach cancer are often similar to those of minor stomach issues including indigestion or a stomach virus. Because you may think you’re just experiencing a touch of the flu, you may not see your doctor as soon as you should. In fact, stomach cancer can often reach an advanced stage before symptoms even occur.

Symptoms of stomach cancer may include:

  • Pain or discomfort in the stomach region
  • Feeling bloated after eating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Heartburn
  • Anemia
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Difficulty swallowing or excessive belching with eating
  • Vomiting blood or blood in the stool

If you experience these symptoms over the course of several weeks, you should definitely consult a doctor.
