Stomach cancer (gastric cancer)
Stomach cancer occurs when cells in your stomach develop abnormally.
The symptoms of stomach cancer are similar to other stomach conditions so it is important to get an accurate diagnosis. Symptoms may include:
- Loss of appetite or weight loss
- Feeling sick or being sick
- Blood clots
- Indigestion, heartburn and burping
- Feeling full
- Blood loss or feeling tired due to blood loss
- Difficulty swallowing
You should see your GP in the first instance. You may be referred to a specialist for further tests, X-rays, or an endoscopy.
