In brief: Ask

If you are concerned, ask.
An egd is a simple procedure (the japanese screen for gastric cancer with egd), and if you have any upper GI symptoms and are concerned an egd would be in order.

In brief: GI consult

Stomach cancer has decreased in incidence in the US over the past few decades.
Do you have any symptoms? What makes you suspect stomach cancer? Please discuss the matter with your doctor and seek a consultation with a GI specialist who may perform endoscopy, if the procedure is warranted.
