Stomach cancer symptoms ???

User Profile
I have rapid heart rate and now I have lost 55lbs in less than 4months and just had an EGD and it showed an inflamed stomach and took biopsy's of my stomach and intestines and it isn't h-pylori. My food is not digesting at all and I can't eat anything without being miserable for days until I throw it up. Could this be cancer?

Only a doctor could tell you that...Cancer can manifests itself in so many ways...I had the same issues, and mine all stemmed around my esophagus...Just continue to follow uP with a medical professional until you get an answer! Don't give uP and DO NOT try to self diagnose yourself on the internet! You'll drive yourself insane and have every ailment known to God! Not good for your mind! Good luck and I hope it all works out for you.

The common symptoms of stomach cancer are-stomach ache, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, Discomfort in the stomach area, severe stomach pain, Feeling full or bloated after a small meal, Diarrhea or constipation and sudden weight loss.

The option of treatment depends primarily on the stage of disease, the size and place of the tumor and general health of patient.

Stomach cancer often does not have symptoms in the early stages, or they can be vague and non-specific -- such as nausea or weight loss. Also, there is no single symptom that exactly pinpoints stomach cancer; therefore, further evaluation and testing is required for a diagnosis.

Early stomach cancer often does not cause symptoms. As the cancer grows, the most common symptoms are:

* Discomfort or pain in the stomach area


* Difficulty swallowing


* Nausea and vomiting


* Weight loss


* Feeling full or bloated after a small meal


* Vomiting blood or having blood in the stool

My mother just recently found out she has stomach cancer she has been suffering for the past 5 years with stomach problems. They told her she had a slow digestive system and gave her fiber drinks and pills to take which didn't help she had pains the past month and doctors told her it was her gallbladder but they would need to make sure she didn't have an ulcer well that's when they found out she had stomach cancer, The doctors were slow but they only guess and practice medicine and now we wait to see what stage the cancer is already but I have a feeling it's in the last stages since it's been five years of suffering, she can't eat, she's in constant pain and has lost a tremendous amount of weight! You need to find a good doctor that will do tests and not just write you off as to having some other ailment.

Hi,
Stomach cancer also called gastric cancer starts in the stomach. Stomach is divided into five layers. Cancer can develop in any of these layers.
