Sources on Twitter are suggesting that Caitlin Beadles has allegedly been diagnosed with stomach cancer. It’s not clear whether this is true, and it’s always kind of hard to know when these stories are correct and when they’re just Chinese whispers.
It was reported last year that Caitlin Beadles had Crohn’s Disease, and at the time rumours of stomach cancer were pretty thoroughly rejected. The latest rumours seem to have developed stronger ‘legs’ and are spreading pretty fast.
Stomach cancer is responsible for around 800,000 deaths a year worldwide, partly because it is asymptomatic in its early stages and diagnosis is therefore often delayed. The early symptoms are usually indigestion and a loss of appetite (especially for meat), followed later by weakness and bloating.
