In brief: A serious disease.
Stomach cancer is an abnormal growth of the lining of the stomach.
It can cause pain and bleeding. If caught early, stomach cancer can be treated by surgically removing the cancer, along with some normal stomach. Stomach cancer can grow quite quickly and move to other organs, at which time it is usually incurable.
