November is Stomach Cancer Awareness Month. Stomach cancer is a less common form of cancer in the United States. However, it is important to spread awareness and encourage people to learn more about the risks and preventions.

What Is Stomach Cancer?

Stomach cancer is when cancer cells form in the lining of the stomach. It is also called Gastric cancer. Signs and symptoms can include:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Feeling bloated or full after eating
  • Heartburn
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Unintentional weight loss

Most risk factors for stomach cancer involve eating habits and certain health conditions. Another risk factor is smoking cigarettes. Stomach cancer is more common in some other parts of the world. This includes Asia, Europe, and Central and South America.
