Stomach ache after eating - hernia / gastritious or stomach cancer?

I have a dull stomach ache (for a few days now) after eating...this happened last year at about the same time. I had a Endoscopy last year and was told I had a hiatal hernia and some gastritious. I was sent home with Prevacid. I also have been having periods of severe nauciousness out of the blue recently. SO I am a bit concerned now.

Since this pain is back I really don't want to go back to the same MD. He was actually playing a computer game while talking to me in his office and stopped our conversation short while taking a call from his toddler son. Needless to say, I was shocked but was in pain and had no other option at the time.

I want to go see another Gastro and will. But in the meantime, I wonder, could I have stomach cancer that this jerk didn't see? I mean he did do an Endoscopy less than a year ago....I have to trust that he was/is correct and it's just my hernia and/or gastritious acting up.

Any feedback would be great.
