Updated July 11, 2018

Like all forms of cancer, it's vitally important that you recognise the symptoms of liver and stomach cancer at an early onset. Many of the signs and symptoms involving these two different types of cancer can mirror each another as well.

Nausea and Vomiting

Both liver and stomach cancer can induce such distinct symptoms as intense nausea and persistent vomiting, the Mayo Clinic says.

Weight Loss

The existence of liver and stomach cancer can cause some people to lose weight quickly and without any type of effort.


It is not uncommon for those suffering from stomach cancer to experience a sense of fullness or bloating after eating, as well as heartburn and indigestion. Those suffering from liver cancer may experience a loss of appetite.


Liver and stomach cancer can lead some people to experience such symptoms as overall fatigue and weakness.


Stomach cancer can also cause intense abdominal pain. Those suffering from liver cancer may notice upper abdominal pain and swelling that can be caused by an enlarged liver.
