Stomach cancer is the third most deadly cancer in the world. Symptoms of this cancer can be easily ignored or confused with something simple, which can cause people to lose valuable time without seeking the expert help they need.
Statistics show alarming numbers of this ruthless disease that attacks men and women, young and old around the world. In 2012, according to data accumulated by the Globocan, 723,000 people of both sexes around the world perished from this disease. People of East Asia are most affected by this cancer worldwide. 24 men per 100,000 women die annually. The mortality of this cancer is also significantly higher in both sexes in Central and South America.
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible. "Stomach cancer may be associated with a high chance of survival if it is detected and treated early. Unfortunately, if not detected early, it is one of the most deadly cancers," says WebMD.
