A series of simple and at first non-serious symptoms are associated with stomach cancer . Dark stools and gradual difficulty in swallowing are some of the most common signs.
Like other tumors, stomach cancer brings with it some symptoms that are not characteristic of the disease. These are signs that can easily be confused with other relatively simpler health problems.
Which are they?
Certain signs of stomach cancer are barely noticed and are often noticed only when the tumor is of considerable size, which already impairs the passage of food. In addition, other sensations can also affect the affected person:
- Pains in the abdomen;
- Dark stools;
- Pain in the mouth of the stomach;
- Vomiting with blood;
- Intense heartburn;
- Loss of appetite and, consequently, spontaneous weight loss.
One or more symptoms
When the tumor is discovered late, the need for removal of the organ becomes greater, so from the identification of the first symptoms it is necessary to consult a specialist as soon as possible. The earlier it is identified, the greater the chances of a cure, in addition to considerably reducing the chances of metastasis.
