In brief: They can be.

But stomach cancer is not the first thing that comes to mind when someone says they have appetite changes.
There are many more common reasons for appetite changes.

In brief: Possibly

Appetite changes can be a symptom of stomach cancer, but also a symptom of other benign causes.
Stomach cancer usually has other symptoms too such as early satiety, weight loss, black-colored stool, upper abdominal pain.
