Stomach lining cancer

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach lining cancer


Avatar m tn I done last thursday and got the results back stating I have thickening of my stomach lining. I started with mild gastritis symptoms a couple years ago that two weeks ago became full blown which is why the doctor ordered the barium. I have been taking losec with some moderate improvement of symptoms and do not feel near deaths door like last week. I just am very worried about this thickening and worry it could be stomach cancer. Anyone else experience this with GERD or gastritis??
Avatar f tn Stomach cancer begins when cancer cells form in the inner lining of our stomach. Early on, stomach cancer may cause: 1)Indigestion 2)Feeling bloated after you eat a meal 3)Heartburn 4)Slight nausea 5)Loss of appetite I think cancer is very serious disease which we all know and it is very risky to go anywhere to get treatment for cancer.

Avatar f tn dear gastroenterologist 1)is there a tumor marker in the stomach cancer for diagnosis of tumor in the early stages? 2)can the chemotherapy in advanced stomach cancer cause the enlargment of tumor and worsening of obstructive symptoms? 3)can the stomach cancer(poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma)cause the diarrhea?
Avatar f tn I also probably should have mentioned that we have a family history of stomach cancer and stomach ulcers, which is also what got me to thinking this. My diet, when I do manage to get it down, is good - no worries there. I do not smoke, and drink alcohol occasionally. My specialist told me about an endoscopy but he said he didn't think I needed one, so instead, told me to wait. Do you really think it's worthwhile going back?
Avatar n tn After my sister's surgery for ovarian cancer, I asked the surgeon if there had been any cancer in the intestines. He said no, but I think he said that the outer covering of the intestines were removed as they were cancerous. Can anyone tell me what this means?
Avatar m tn I have been having pains on both sides of my stomach and it feels bloated. I had an ablation done about 5 years ago after my last son was born. I just turned 43, so I have no clue if I am post-menopausal. Went for an ultrasound and an intra-vaginal ultrasound and they found an Ovarian Complex Cyst measuring 2.2 cm on my right ovary and it said it is thought to be 'minimally complex' possibly due to being a hemmoragic cyst.
Avatar n tn I am just really worried...of course I fear the worst like stomach cancer or something. I don't have any other symptoms such as heartburn or acid reflux. In doing some research, it seems that the other, less-serious problems have symptoms like heartburn/acid refulx so I am worried that since my only symptom seems to be pain and fullness and that it has been going on for sometime that it must be something more serious like cancer.
Avatar n tn I ignored the symptoms of the vaginal bleeding until I started to get pain and pressure in my lower abdomen. At times my stomach will become very swollen, and very hard. I've gone up 2 pant sizes in less than 3 months. I get dull aching in my lower back, I get pain on the sides under ribs, I have leg pain that prevents me from sleeping through the night. I recently went to the doctors concerned. He ran a few blood tests CBC's and Iron levels, thyroid and hormones. They all came back normal.
203342 tn?1328740807 pylori infection will develop ulcers of the duodenum or stomach. H. pylori also is associated with stomach cancer and a rare type of lymphocytic tumor of the stomach called MALT lymphoma.
Avatar n tn If your friend's stomach is also being irradiated, the vomiting could be due to the effect of radiation. Normal stomach lining can get inflamed due to the "burning" effect of radiation, and absorption of food and fluids can get impaired because of this, leading to retention of stomach contents, and predisposing to vomiting. If the stomach wall is thick, this may mean tumor infiltration of the stomach wall (just a guess).
Avatar m tn Hey guys, I didn't want to post this in the stomach cancer forum because I doubt it's cancer and I was afraid nobody would see it. So basically from around Christmas time I developed pretty bad diarrhea. Grim, I know. But this went on until around the second week of January. I put it down to drinking, eating crap and not being to the gym over Christmas, new year and my birthday. Anyway, it subsided for about a week and came back.
Avatar n tn He received a ultrasound which showed an abnormal thickening of the stomach and slightly enlarged lymph nodes. We then took him for a endoscopy about 2 days ago. This showed several stomach polyps. Right now we are awaiting results of biopsy to determine if they are cancerous. Fortunately he is not vomiting or defacating blood right now and he is quite lively.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. Goodman and all the forum readers, My mom had a recurrence of ovarian cancer in Jan 2007. There were 3 small tumours in the stomach cavity, "outside" the stomach lining. She did chemo again, but it didn't help much, the tumours got a little smaller but were still there. She was offered to take part of a clinical trial and had her first treatment last Tuesday.
Avatar n tn Both of these were done on the upper abdomen. Would either or both of these test show stomach cancer or cancer in the lining of the abdomen? That is the only organ they didn't mention when they were saying everything looked good. They did say my spleen was a little enlarged with the ultra sound but not the CT. The CT was done about 3 days after the ultra sound. I am going in for a scope March 3 but I am thinking I should possibly try to get in earlier.
Avatar f tn In 2003 they again found cancer this time in my aunt’s stomach lining. The doctor was 100% sure she got all cancer. While performing this surgery they see a spot on her liver but tell her it is nothing, again no radiation or chemo was done. Now flash forward a day before Easter April 2010 my aunt gets extremely sick she can is not having bowel movements and cannot hold down food or even ice chips.
Avatar n tn Remember that laxatives are habit forming. The muscle that is in the lining of the intestines which cause the waste to move down to the colon for the bowl movement can stop working well enough for the natural process to happen. I sometimes go 2 time a day and have been normal for many years, though I've heard normal for some people can be up to 2 days without a movement. Myself I don't believe that's healthy, but I'm only a lay person with a lot of experience with several issues.
Avatar n tn Now 2 months after I come off of lupron, I am having terrible pains in my lower stomach and backpains. I went in for a sono and my results came back as a very large mass on my ovary. That is all the doctor would tell me. He said I needed to come in to discuss treatment. I can't get in until next week and I am worried that I might be waiting to long if it something more serious. I have almost every symptom of ovarian cancer. Should I wait or find another doctor who will see me right away?
Avatar f tn Thank you! My latest fear is that my stomach issues are stomach cancer because when I get online and look up my symptoms it all says cancer but I have done that for years I guess. I am afraid to die, not afraid of being dead just the process. I have dealt with the stomach issue before about four years ago but I didn't have the feeling full issue. I don't know what to think-this may be a situation where a little knowledge is dangerous.
Avatar n tn I will have to have a full Hysterectomy with Both ovaries removed, Probably have to have operation down my stomach due to the size of Tumor. I am waiting for appointment to be admitted. He said that they will not know if it is Cancer until they do a biopsy. This was quite a shock, as it was only 10cm end November. I now look about 6 months preg. But, I have to wait for appointment for hospital, What do you think my chances are of it being Cancer considering the size of this tumour?
Avatar f tn What I can guess is that those symptoms don't seem as cancer. In fact symptoms never equal a cancer. Only diagnosis means cancer. Also stomach cancer CAN be cured. So wait for the results and try not to worry and it would be good for him if he quit smoking and alcohol.
Avatar m tn Hi, chronic gastritis is a risk factor for peptic ulcer disease, gastric polyps, and benign and malignant gastric tumors. Some people with chronic H. pylori gastritis or autoimmune gastritis develop atrophic gastritis. Atrophic gastritis destroys the cells in the stomach lining that produce digestive acids and enzymes. Atrophic gastritis can lead to gastric cancer. Regards.
Avatar n tn I was cleared of Helicobacter Infection, then gastritis, this is going back over eight years now, I had two Endoscopies and one Breath Test, all clear, over the last year or so, my symptoms of burping (very noisy at times) inflammation of the lining of the throat and stomach seems to be geting worse, I sometimes feel acid coming up to my throat, even though I use one Lansoprazole at night, my Doctors just keep on telling me to take Lansoprazole during the day as well.

Avatar n tn A sister-in law- of mine told me she took the same type of medication years ago and it gave her an infection of the stomach lining which lasted for 3 months. Go back to your doctor and let hime know what kind of drugs or over the counter medication you are taking. Good luck.
314557 tn?1232930264 I am back after a total thyroidectomy on the 9th. Feeling better everyday but cancer was found in both lobes so am on to radiation. Surgeon called monday evening and said stop the synthroid so am beginning to experience some of the effects of that now including being more fatigued.
Avatar f tn I recently had a colonoscopy and the camera down my throat tests done (I'm sorry I can't remember the name of that test) It came back that the esophogus was burned and so is the stomach lining. No ulcers and no cancer. I wasn't given a diagnosis so I don't know what I have other than that. I was put on protonix and had severe side effects from it including loosing 20 lbs in 3 weeks from the vomiting caused by the medication. My Dr. took me off of it and put me on zantac.
Avatar m tn Hello, Gastritis refers to a group of conditions that involve the inflammation of the lining of the stomach. It can cause weight loss, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting and occasionally hametemesis.In mild cases, over-the-counter antacids may help. In more severe cases, the doctor may prescribe an acid blocker like ranitidine. Or proton pump inhibitor, which helps to reduce stomach acid.
Avatar f tn She was diagnosed for stage 4 ovarian cancer. They removed both her ovaries and as I understand, they found cancer cells in the lining of her omentum. They tried to remove the omentum but it was hardly attached to her intestines so they just decided to remove a part of it. My They also removed 4000 cc of ascitis fluid from her stomach. My question is, if they remove the intestines and reconstruct it, is it possible to do that?
Avatar n tn He said I was covered in pollops in my stomach. He biospied one said no cancer. At the time I was treated with biaxin for a tear in the lining of my stomach. I also have a hieinal hernia. Please respond with any advice you can give. It will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! They ran all kinds of blood work and it came back negative. I am really stressed out over this! Have not been sleeping to well. Also, can taking antibotics affect the results of blood work? Thank you!
