Hello.Belching, bloating, and heartburn are symptoms that appear in different pathologies, benign pathologies (eg functional dyspepsia) and malignant pathologies.It is likely that your discomfort may be secondary to benign pathology.However, you must go to your doctor.He will examine you and he will request, if he deems it appropriate ,CT Scan to rule out abdominal metastasis.
I wish you good health.
