Stomach cancer

Stomach cancer

Stomach cancer, or gastric cancer, is a relatively uncommon type of cancer that affects about 7,300 people each year in the UK.The initial symptoms of stomach cancer are vague and easy to mistake for other less serious conditions. 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.
