In brief: Gastroscopy

Usually stomach cancer is associated with symptoms.
Either bleeding from the ulcerating lesion associated with the early form of tumor, some evidence of obstruction when the lesion, now rare is in the prepyloric area or swallowing problems when related to the upper stomach, cardio-esophageal region. In any of the cases when a question of some pathology arises, a gastroscopy/biopsy is indicated.
