Stomach Cancer

Early stomach cancer is asymptomatic. Stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, bleeding stool and anemia are symptoms of stomach cancer.

Helicobacter pylori infection, high salt diet, food with nitroso compound, smoking and obesity will increase the risk of stomach cancer. Patients with partial gastrectomy, intestinal metaplasia and atrophic gastritis also have higher risk of stomach cancer.
