In brief: Wellbutrin (bupropion)

Wellbutrin (bupropion) antidepressant can have slight effect on appetite, although doubt possibility of cancer if no other symptoms exist to suggest tumor in stomach for your age.

Apparently, it promotes weight loss.

In brief: Perhaps

You are not likely to have gastric cancer.
Early satiety could be due to wellbutrin (bupropion). Wellbutrin (bupropion) is associated with modest weight loss (it was actually studied as a weight loss medication but the effect wasn't strong enough). It can also slow down passage of food through the GI system which could lead to early satiety.
