Studying late at night, an 18-year-old teenager in Taiwan eats instant noodles almost every day. When he finally went to college, he suffered from advanced gastric cancer. The cancer cells spread to other organs and died more than a year after diagnosis. Yan Jiarui, an attending physician in the Department of Hematology Oncology, warns of eating less marinated food such as sausage bacon and instant noodles.
The number of deaths of gastric cancer in the past 10 years has continued to rise, mainly because the patients have almost reached the late stage of diagnosis.

The young male gastric cancer patient was only 18 years old when he was diagnosed. From the beginning of the country, he only had to eat instant noodles when he was studying at night. After he was admitted to college, he developed symptoms such as bloating, nausea and abdominal pain. As he became more and more uncomfortable, his family accompanied him. The result of the examination is the fourth stage of gastric cancer, and the tumor has spread to other organs.
Liu Zhiming, the attending physician of the Department of Internal Medicine, pointed out that the symptoms of early gastric cancer are not obvious, and it is easy to be mistaken for gastric ulcer and stomach pain.
