Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

I can't understand how gastric cancer was ruled out, whether he has undergone endoscopic examination or any imaging like CT scan. If not already done get an endoscopic examination because stomach pain and blood in vomitus is alarming feature and require evaluation and treatment accordingly.

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
