According to the NCI, stomach cancer is asymptomatic and this implies that it often goes undetected until an advanced stage. Some of the most common symptoms of advanced stomach cancer are:

  • Nausea
  • Unexplained heartburn
  • Constant bloating
  • Poor appetite
  • Blood in the stool
  • Jaundice
  • Feeling full after eating in small portions
  • Excessive fatigue and exhaustion
  • Stomach ache
  • Low red blood cell count (anemia)
  • Swelling and fluid build up

There is a high probability that these symptoms are caused by things other than cancer like viruses or ulcers. But experiencing these symptoms chronically is an indication to get oneself examined by a doctor. Read more on the different stomach cancer types.
