Cancer of the Stomach is a common disease.
But when cancer attacks the inlet of the stomach, the tumour is of the scaly epitheliomatous variety.
It often begins in the tissues of the end of the gullet, spreading downwards to the stomach.
The symptoms of cancer of the stomach are apt to be indefinite (for many weeks or months).
Much of the food remains in the stomach and, undergoing fermentation, causes the evolution of gas which distends the stomach and gives rise to unavoidable belching.
The vomiting may take place every two or three days, enormous quantities of undigested food mixed with frothy, yeast-like mucous being thrown up. And whilst the stomach is slowly filling up again after one of these uncontrollable emptyings, sudden and violent movements of the individual may cause the fluid to give rise to audible "splashings."
But later the vomited matter is blackened by blood which has escaped into the stomach from the ulcerated growth.
A characteristic feature of cancer is the carrying of the epithelial cells (which are the essential element of the growth) to the nearest lymphatic glands, and in cancer of the stomach the secondary implication of the glands may cause the formation of large masses between the stomach and the liver, which may press upon the large veins and give rise to dropsy.
These are sometimes erroneously spoken of as the "roots" of cancer, and in the case of cancer of the stomach they may fix it to the pancreas, the liver, the bowels or the spine.
When the growth is at the cardiac end of the stomach, blocking the gullet and causing slow starvation, the abdomen may advisedly be opened, and, the stomach having been fixed to the surface-wound, a permanent opening may be arranged for the introduction of an adequate amount of food.
In the case of pyloric obstruction a permanent opening may be established between the stomach and a neighbouring piece of intestine, so that the food may find its way along the alimentary canal greatly to the relief of the symptoms of gastric dilatation.
In some early cases of pyloric cancer resection of the disease may be performed, the upper end of the intestine being afterwards joined to the middle of the stomach by a kind of short-circuiting operation.

She jerked an elbow back into his stomach and heard the breath escape him in a groan.
Her stomach felt as if it were trying to crawl out her mouth.
He just shoved the knife in his stomach and jerked it out.
A whiff of something dead assailed her nostrils, causing her stomach to turn.
Something else occurred to her and her stomach contracted.
Her stomach twisted into a ball.
He lay on his stomach with his arms out-stretched.
Her stomach twisted into a knot and her throat constricted.
She rolled onto her stomach to see who spoke.
His elbows were propped on his knees, the trench falling back to show a lean body, flat stomach and muscular thighs outlined by the soft material of his pants.
The sensations of freefalling made her stomach turn.
Her stomach fluttered, her heartbeat fast.
He sighed and flopped onto his stomach, facing away from them.
You didn't quit because you wanted to, but because you had to after breaking those laws to spare me and Hazel, Katie added, patting her stomach.
Katie didn't move as Wynn placed a hand on her stomach.
Dread pooled in the base of his stomach for more than one reason.
Gabriel felt something heavier than dread in his stomach.
She was hungover and tired, with a roiling stomach and headache, yet she managed to make it to work before the breakfast rush.
She opened her mouth to speak and then clamped it shut, her stomach turning.
Warmth and cold shot through her, righting her stomach but bringing intense pain to her head.
Too much alcohol on an empty stomach.
Her headache was gone, her stomach full, and another glass of whiskey in her hand.
She nearly leapt past her escort when he entered the banquet hall, the scents of roasted meat and a million other things making her stomach roar.
When her stomach was full, she allowed herself to look at him.
He felt heaviness sink to the pit of his stomach, and regret trickled through him.
She looked down, stomach unsettled by the distance.
She almost lost her stomach at the innocent question from the middle-aged matriarch of the bed and breakfast.
Five cups of coffee later and a full Irish breakfast --without the blood pudding --settling in her stomach, she still couldn't shake the throb.
She ran, eyes blurry and stomach turning.
He felt dread knot in his stomach at the sign she wasn't going to give Rhyn yet another chance.
She went woodenly, her stomach in turmoil.
Heaviness settled into the pit of his stomach.
The sight of Toby.s near lifeless features made her feel sick to her stomach.
She was silent, surprised as much by his information as she was by the turning of her stomach at the thought of losing Rhyn.
Resigned, Jade peeled off his shirt, the sense of triumph making him feel sick to his stomach.
For… and he pointed to her stomach.
His gaze went to her stomach.
He.d been responsible for enough Immortal deaths this night; he couldn.t stomach more.
She darted to the other side of the bed and dropped to her stomach, peering under the bed through the door.
She touched her stomach with a flutter
"Yeah," he agreed, glance going to her stomach.
With regret heavy in his stomach, he left.
You don.t have the heart or stomach for what that entails.
"A new breed of demon warrior, one that cannot be defeated by Immortals," he said and glanced at her stomach.
Gabriel.s voice startled her, and dread settled deeper into her stomach.
Her hand went to her stomach, and her eyes watered.
His eyes went to her stomach.
She gazed out the windows, unease making her stomach churn.
One hand rested on her expanding stomach.
A'Ran's warm chest was at her back, his intimate touch on her stomach making her feel far more delicate than she ever had.
A'Ran locked their bodies together with his large hand on her stomach.
"C'mon, c'mon," she whispered desperately, her throat burning with acid as she struggled to hold down her stomach.
Suddenly, the ground jolted and shook, throwing her onto her stomach.
She watched him systematically behead or run through the three men, her stomach churning at the sight of so much death.
None of their words registered, nothing but the sick feeling at the pit of his stomach.
She wore the alien clothing, though her stomach was starting to protrude.
Her stomach churned as the day grew on.
Evelyn tried to get her to eat twice, but she couldn't stomach it.
She felt panicked and sick at her stomach, uncertain what to say.
But it turns my stomach to think of a man hurting a woman like that.
He held her by the shoulders, his stomach churning from her distress.
On each side of her tail were deep hollows and her stomach was low and distended.
Something about his expression started an uneasy feeling in her stomach.
The feel of his warm fingers on her cheek, the uneasy stomach - they were all warning bells.
Her stomach growled, reminding her that she hadn't eaten more than two bites of her breakfast.
An uneasy feeling began in the pit of her stomach.
Carmen took the cup of coffee and sipped it, feeling the warmth all the way down to her stomach.
No, the idea turned her stomach.
She might as well have punched him in the stomach.
She stretched out on her stomach and absently poked a piece of straw into her mouth.
As he slid away, his belt buckle gouged into her stomach and she cried out in pain.
Her stomach was churning and her eyes burned with unshed tears.
Katie looked relieved, but Carmen's stomach took an uncomfortable lurch.
She took in the scene, unable to explain the sense of doom settling in her stomach.
Her stomach fluttered at the idea of her Guardian offering to marry her.
Her heart dropped to her stomach, and she ran.
His shoulders were broad, his chest wide, his stomach flat, his hips lean.
General Greene's messages, however, made her sick to her stomach.
The insurgent pinned her in place with one foot on her stomach and wrenched off her civilian grays.
His shoulders were wide, his back wide and tapering to a slender, lean stomach and hips.
He slept on his stomach, his arms folded beneath his head, and a sheet covering him from the waist down.
Lana stretched onto her stomach, watching them from the safety of the tree.
Her stomach fell as they dropped.
Brady's stomach roared at the scent of real food.
Lana looked back at the generator, dread in the pit of her stomach.
It took too long for Brady to appear, and her stomach twisted as she imagined him blown to pieces.
Rhyn grunted and rolled onto his stomach. The stone floor beneath him was cool but not cool enough to soothe the hot fury of his magic. The effects of whatever Toby had injected into him were almost gone.
"She's counting on you to wipe me out," Rhyn said, his stomach sinking. He'd suspected Death's promise was made too easily, but it had seemed too clear to be anything but what she'd said.
Pain streaked through her, the kind of pain with no physical source. Katie began to cry, unable to see an end to her ordeal that would mean she – or her baby – lived. She hugged her stomach and sobbed for the loss of Rhyn, her own life, their child's.
The branch lowered him so fast, his stomach turned. Toby scampered off the branch and stared upwards, wondering how Death could allow the demons into her domain. He looked around wildly, expecting them to leap from his surroundings.
She needed sleep and real food. Her hand went instinctively to her stomach, and she couldn't help wondering if the food and water cubes were good for the baby.
Katie rolled onto her stomach, almost too tired to get up. The sky and jungle were growing dark. Through the bramble, she saw the marble palace. Death's palace. Katie's heart beat harder as she looked at her destination, not at all certain this was where she should've gone but not knowing where else to go.
He was dog tired and his stomach grumbled its dissatisfaction at being limited to the airline's toy dinner.
We have to get you a good stiff drink and a stomach full of food.
They're hell on an empty stomach.
"I plan to remedy the empty stomach very soon," she said, studying the menu.
By 9:00 and after four aspirins, he had stretched the worst of the pain away, filled his stomach with some fresh Danish and was beginning to feel pretty good.
His stomach wanted to know why he didn't stop for dinner but he ignored it.
With a full water bottle and a full stomach and legs warmed to the rhythm of the ride, he became molded into a near trance as he churned up the Colorado miles.
She ran a hand across her expanding stomach.
She gazed up at him, butterflies beginning in her stomach.
What would it be like to feel their baby move in her stomach – or to suckle it?
The idea of what Josh might do made her stomach contract.
He could probably hear her stomach growling.
She stretched out on the cot, lying on her stomach.
Oh. I'm glad you're putting something in your stomach.
She'd better put something in her stomach.
Her stomach growled, reminding her that they hadn't eaten supper.
An uneasy feeling twisted her stomach.
She stared at him, a bad feeling twisting her stomach.
A cold feeling started in the pit of her stomach.
Her stomach squeezed into a knot.
Her stomach twisted into a knot and her eyes burned with the threat of tears.
The large belt buckle at his lean waist lay flat against a washboard stomach.
She stared at him, a gnawing feeling beginning in her stomach that had nothing to do with hunger.
Her stomach twisted painfully.
Seeing the mare suffer twisted Carmen's stomach into a knot.
Nothing tasted good or settled on her stomach.
His gaze fell to her stomach and then lifted back to her face.
Her stomach recoiled with the bite of his words.
His hand slipped down and caressed her stomach.
She showered and slipped into some jeans, but couldn't get them zipped over her stomach.
Carmen stared after him, tears burning her eyes and her stomach twisting in knots.
"Lie still," he directed, and put a gentle hand on her stomach.
He pressed down on her stomach.
Her stomach hurt and she felt nauseous.
She's feeling sick to her stomach.
Her stomach hurt and she felt weak, but she wasn't about to let him carry her around like an invalid.
Lori nodded and struggled off the porch swing, her swollen stomach a reminder that babies were still an option for some people.
Her stomach contracted into a tiny ball.
As always, the memory made him sick to his stomach.
Damian crouched in front of her, his hand on her stomach.
The scent of barbacoa made his stomach rumble.
He reacted too fast for her to counter, snatching her forearms and shoving her onto her stomach.
With a sinking stomach, Jenn admitted she had less than a day of influence left on the Black God.
I lost sight of my mission, she said, grateful for the one piece of advice she could stomach.
Sofi pushed herself into a sit and rested her hands on the top of her stomach.
