Hello everyone -
My dad has been expericing colic-type pain in his stomch (intermittent and seems to come in "attacks"). The doctors first thought it was a kidney stone or gallstone and have now ruled those two items out. He has had bloodworks that come back normal and ultrasounds that also come back normal.

He also has chills, has lost some weight and is very tired. Do these symptoms sound like they could be stomach cancer? How is stomach cancer generally diagnosed?

Many thanks,
Vanessa

HI YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR DAD INSIST ON AN ENDOSCOPY. DON'T STOP UNTIL YOU GET AN ANSWER--BLOOD WORK IS NOT THE TEST--SEVERAL BLOOD TESTS COME BACK COMPLETELY NORMAL WHEN THERE IS A DEFINITIVE PROBLEM. GET VERY AGGRESSIVE WITH YOUR DR. OR DRS.

I hope your Father found a Dr to do an EGD. Mine waited until I had all the signs and then still did nothing for me. I had to find my own GI.
