Cancer is caused when the cells in your body begin to grow out of order. Cells in almost all your body parts can become cancerous and start spreading to other regions of the body. Stomach Cancer, also known as Gastric cancer begins in the stomach. This cancer forms in the tissue linings of your stomach and mostly starts from cells in the inner layer of your stomach (the mucous) before it spreads to other body parts. There are three types of stomach cancer, and they include neuroendocrine tumors, gastric lymphomas and the Gastro-Intestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST).
Stomach cancer can be diagnosed in different circumstances. Unfortunately to most people, these symptoms are often ambiguous and very common and can easily be mistaken to be symptoms of other medical conditions. During the early stages, most stomach cancers do not even show any signs making it hard for a stomach tumor to be detected. In case you experience any of the following symptoms, you should consider seeking medical advice.
People suffering from stomach cancer are more likely to have blood clots. If you start experiencing sudden chest pains or experience pain or swelling in your feet, it could probably be as a result of a blood clot in your lung or your leg. You should, therefore, make an appointment with your physician as soon as possible.
