In brief: No.

You're more likely to be hit my a meteorite than to have stomach cancer.
It's something else, and probably nothing bad. Relax. If it gets worse, get it checked out.

In brief: Symptomsof gastricCA

Sounds like the Nexium (esomeprazole) decreased your acid production but didn;t fix the cause of your pain.
It could be that your stomach has become raw(gastritis) or u may have a hiatal hernia. Stomach symptoms can be aggravated by stress.Stomach ca causes pain , bleeding, weight loss, and is most often found in older males.Check with your doc, you don't need to suffer like you are now.
