The Main Signs Your Bloating and Stomach Pain Is a Sign of Cancer

6Stomach cancer

Stomach cancer isn’t a common disease and affects around 7,000 people in the UK every year. The early symptoms are a nagging stomach ache, bloating especially after meals, wind and gas, constant burping and belching, indigestion and heartburn. The heartburn and flatulence does not even go away with medication although there may be some relief only to occur after the next meal again.

Besides cancer, here are some more causes of bloated stomach.

8Too much Raw Food

While raw food is considered healthy because of the preserved nutrients in it, cooked food can be more digestible because cooking makes the food easier to digest in the stomach. In fact contrary to popular belief, cooking also releases the availability of the nutrients. Another thing that makes raw food indigestible is the excess fiber that can easily cause gas and bloating. There should be a balance between raw and cooked food in any diet.

9Lactose Intolerance

Lactose intolerance is another big culprit that causes bloating and even possibly diarrhea in some cases.  Many people suffer from lactose intolerance without even knowing it. This is because the human body was not designed to digest milk after 5 years of life. Dairy products except yoghurt can also cause lactose intolerance.
