Frequent burping, persistant abdominal pain and feeling bloated after meals are some symptoms.The exact cause of stomach cancer is still unclear, although a number of factors that increase your risk of developing the condition have been identified such as smoking and a low amount of fibre in the diet. A gastro-intestinal surgeon may be required to remove the stomach if chemotherapy fails to reduce the cancerous cells.
