Hi Dinesh;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
One of the symptom of cancer especially stomach cancer is weight loss so if his weight is to be increased then he should respond to treatment if he is taking.He can have healthy diet if possible and follow the doctors treatment.There is no other method to increase his weight ;for further management please discuss with his doctor.
