Can you attach the photos here? How tall is she? How much does she weigh? Any weight change? Pain or itch? When did it start? Does anything make it worse or better? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Is she aware of anything which might have triggered it? Any medical problems? Any surgeries? Any medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?

This is Dr. David

a peeling tongue is not a sign of stomach cancer.

but it can be a sign of bad stomach acid reflux or a tongue fungal infection like thrush.

if she drank something very hot in her mouth yesterday like hot coffee or soup, this can cause peeling skin on her tongue today

she needs to see a doctor to get her mouth evaluated.

but I would not worry about stomach cancer.

did she drink something very hot?
