6 Signs That You Develop A Stomach Tumor, This Silent Killer

6 Signs That You Develop A Stomach Tumor, This Silent Killer

Also known as gastric cancer cells, stomach cancer is a condition that is sometimes diagnosed late. Indeed, its symptoms merge with other diseases. This type of cancer develops gradually and the chances of survival are great if diagnosed early. Despite the fact that there are many cures for preventing cancer, this disease is likely to be fatal and it is important to be well informed about it. Discover in this article the precursor symptoms and ways to prevent stomach cancer.

6 Signs That You Develop A Stomach Tumor, This Silent Killer

It can never be said enough, it is better to prevent than cure. Several diseases take people who suffer from it for lack of early diagnosis, and this is the case of patients suffering from cancer of the stomach. In France, about 9000 new cases of stomach cancer are recorded every year, including nearly 66% of men. This is in nine out of ten cases of cancer that develops from the glandular cells of the stomach wall. To quickly diagnose this disease, here are the signs that should alert you.

First signs of stomach cancer

The signs of stomach cancer are very common and can sometimes be likened to the symptoms of the flu. However, if you notice any of these signs and symptoms listed below, you should consult your doctor and do additional tests as soon as possible:
  • Pain and heaviness in the stomach
  • Anemia
  • Sudden fatigue
  • Digestive changes, such as loss of appetite, feeling of fullness after a light meal (early satiety), heartburn (difficulty digesting).
  • Loss of blood by vomiting or in the stool
  • nausea and vomiting
  • Causes and prevention of stomach cancer

The causes of stomach cancer are diverse and some factors reinforce the risk of getting this type of cancer. We can mention among others:

Chronic gastritis: Inflammation of the lining or lining of the stomach due to a bacterium (Helicobacter pylori) or a virus.
Dietary factors: excess salt, smoked foods, red meats, excess alcohol and coffee.

The presence of polyps: cellular malformations that are precancerous and can progress rapidly to cancer if nothing is done.
Biermer's disease: a disease that is responsible for the progressive destruction of cells in the gastric wall.

To reduce the risk of suffering from stomach cancer it is recommended above all to minimize your consumption of alcohol, tobacco, refined sugars (white sugar which is only caloric and which provides no other element nutritious except for sucrose.)

In prevention, cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower or broccoli are preferred because they are considered foods that help prevent cancer. Indeed, cruciferous vegetables contain several phytochemical molecules with anticancer properties. Once the vegetable is chewed and chewed, it releases glucosinolates (a molecule that has antibacterial properties). This molecule comes into contact with myrosinase (an enzyme also present in cruciferous vegetables) and then turn into sulforaphane, a molecule with antibiotic properties that can fight against the bacteria responsible for gastric ulcers and cancer.

Another spice to favor during meals is turmeric. Indeed, this spice is a powerful antioxidant that acts on cancer cells and slows their development.

If you consume turmeric alone, it may not be absorbed by the intestines. We recommend you to consume it in combination with ginger, black pepper or dissolved in oil. Here is a simple recipe.

  • Black pepper (a pinch).
  • Extra virgin olive oil (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Turmeric (1/4 teaspoon)


Simply mix all the ingredients and add the mixture to your soup, salad or other dish.

Caution: Turmeric is not recommended for people with gall bladder disease. If you also use other medications, it is best to make sure with your doctor that turmeric will not influence the effects of the drugs.
