Abdominal pain is one of the most common symptoms of stomach cancer and is usually what prompts people to seek medical attention. Abdominal pain can range from persistent mild discomfort to severe pain. Pain and discomfort generally occur in the upper abdomen area. That said, due to the way the nerves detect pain in the abdomen, the location of pain doesn’t necessarily reflect where the source of that pain is located.
Regardless, the sooner you see a doctor the better your chances of a quick recovery. Feeling uncomfortable in your own skin is not common. The body has natural defenses, and if you sense something wrong, then you’re probably on the right track.
