Gastric Cancer

Gastric cancer, or stomach cancer, typically starts in cells lining the stomach that produce mucus; this is referred to as adenocarcinoma. Gastroesophageal junction cancer occurs in the part of the stomach where the cardia (top of the stomach) meets the end of the esophagus. This type of cancer has become more common.

Signs and symptoms of gastroesophageal junction cancer and stomach cancer may include the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Feeling full
  • Severe heartburn
  • Severe indigestion
  • Persistent nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Persistent vomiting
  • Weight loss
