Answer

Early disease has no associated symptoms; however, some patients with incidental complaints are diagnosed with early gastric cancer. Most symptoms of gastric cancer reflect advanced disease. Patients may complain of one or more of the following:

  • Indigestion
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Postprandial fullness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Melena
  • Hematemesis
  • Weight loss
