Symptoms of stomach cancer in the early stages are similar to symptoms of a number of common disorders of the digestive system.
The most common symptoms of stomach cancer are:
- indigestion or heartburn– also known as dyspepsia
- feeling full or bloated even after eating small amounts
- pain in the stomach or abdomen
- unexplained weight loss
- difficulty swallowing – also known as dysphagia
There are a number of conditions that may cause these symptoms, not just stomach cancer. If any of these symptoms are experienced, it is important that they are discussed with a doctor.
