Symptoms of stomach cancer

Specific symptoms are usually absent early in the disease course. The stomach wall is very mobile and therefor tumors can be large before causing problems.

Early symtoms:

  • Dyspepsia
  • Diffuse pain in the epigastrium

Common symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Anemia
  • Loss of appetite
  • Early fullness
  • Vomiting
  • Pain which is not relieved by food intake
  • Moderate weight loss

Symptoms of advanced disease:

  • Pain in the back in the thoracic-lumbar transition when there is invasion of pancreas/posterior abdominal wall.  
  • Retention of solid food in the esophagus or stomach depending on localization of stenosis. 
  • Significant anemia 
  • Ascites from peritoneal carcinosis, (significant spreading to the peritoneum) possibly with ileus.
  • Significant weightloss
  • Icterus
