Stomach cancers are also known as gastric cancers. The main treatment for stomach cancer is surgery. Early stomach cancers often have no symptoms. Serious symptoms that might indicate a life-threatening condition.

Hello doctor, my name is Ibraheem, am 32 year old from India. I stopped smoking 4 years ago and since then I am suffering from stomach pain. I have gastric problem and in addition to it, am also suffering from chest pain and back pain too. I have done my heart tests but the results came normal. I am looking forward for some guidance or some remedy from you as am exhausted of taking medicines, but found no cure. Currently I am taking Leprazool everyday before breakfast in the morning. Please help me.
