Does gastric cancer always bleed?

A loved one has been experiencing crippling stomach pain when eating. The doctor seems to be leaning towards cancer rather than an ulcer because there isn't any blood in the stool. This doesn't make sense to me, since I thought that blood was a symptom of cancer (and many ulcers). Are there gastric cancers that don't bleed at all?
