Avatar f tn My boyfriend has SEVERE SEVERE heartburn. He gets heartburn from weird things like chex mix and the candy whoppers. He was diagnosed with an ulcer when he was just 17 years old...he is now 23 and was just diagnosed with H. Pylori...he has abdominal pain...bad indigestion...and such. Is it possible that he has stomach cancer...and that's the reason for the H. Pylori and ulcer?
Avatar m tn I am very disturbed that the discomfort is not going. I have made 4 trips to the doctor and he is not worried. Do I have stomach cancer ? what should I do now ?
Avatar n tn That's hard to answer. At your age stomach cancer is INCREDIBLY rare. Just try to get it out of your mind.
Avatar f tn Six months is a too long time and you should have got evaluated by now. Stomach diseses, gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, stomach cancer all can lead to nausea and loss of appetite. Do you also have yellowish discoloration of your skin, eyes and urine? That could be due to gall bladder disease or hepatitis. Eat small healthy meals. You need to consult a primary care physician. He will further refer you to a gastroenterologist.

I had it done yesterday and she found possible cancer or an ulcer in my stomach. Doing my own research I've pretty much ruled out an ulcer so that leaves me with cancer. The biopsy is due back in a few days so I should know this week. I'm guessing lymphoma since that is related to the immune system.
Avatar f tn I guess I just have to live in pain for the rest of my life and hope I don't end up with a perforation or stomach cancer. I've already had breast cancer and melanoma, sure hope I don't have to add a third to the list. I don't understand why no one can give me anything close to an answer as to why none of these medicines work for me. I can't be the first person in the world who didn't respond to typical ulcer treatments.
Avatar m tn H Pylori thrives in low stomach acid and lowers stomach acid further. Low levels of stomach acid (stomach acid stimulates the pancreas to release enzymes to help with digestion just to add) can also cause malabsorption and floating stools. There are many possible symptoms from not enough stomach acid. My mother takes betaine HCL with pepsin supplements to increase stomach acid and digestive enzyme supplements to help with digestion. I'll send you a few article with more info.
Avatar m tn No one in my family has had colon cancer. Three months ago I was diagnosed with mono, which really brought down my whole immune system. I then had walking pneumonia. I had sinus infections in between too, which caused me to take many antibiotics. I have a severely sensitive stomach and the antibiotics ruined my stomach. Ever since than, I have been very nauseous, no energy at all, loss of appetite, and some pain in my left lower abdomen.
Avatar m tn I had my thyroid removed 11/08 due to papillary cancer with some metastasis to lymph nodes. Had RAI 1/09, did feel tired and some GI discomfort, all symtoms improved. I started to have nausea/sour stomach issues a few months later and these continue. I initially used the over the counter products Prilosec, Zantac, etc, my doctor tested me for H Pylori, negative. He concluded that I may have an ulcer and prescribed Nexium.
Avatar f tn Hi, Gastric cancer show up on CT scans. I would suggest an upper GI endoscopy test to see if dudenal ulcer has healed and a biopsy /breath test to diagnose H.pylori infection. Treatment of H. pylori can sometimes worsen acid reflux symptoms.
Avatar f tn yeah i do want an endoscopy that is what they did the last time. it's an easy procedure you are sleeping basically. I am beginning to feel so much better though.Pain seem s to be less and less. Could this be a good sign.My back still hurts some but i remember it did the last time as well. Poops are very normal urine is as well. i go for more blood work next wednesday and they will check the lipase at that time.I hope it goes down some. I get anxiety over this kind of stuff.
Avatar f tn Gastric cancer and small lesions are often not visible on CT scans unless the lesion is large - the larger the cancer/primary tumor, the more likely CT can identify it. That is why endoscopy is often performed to evaluate ulcers and to look for cancers via direct visualization. Have you seen a gastroenterologist yet? Have you had an endoscopy yet?
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 f tn She was to begin treatment with Avastin+Cytoxan, however a gastroscope revealed an ulcer in her duodenum and her doctor is reluctant to go forward with the Avastin. The doctor is now contemplating Taxol + Iressa. (My mother's tumor has not been tested for EGFR) Do you have any thoughts pertaining to this combo? Would it be more useful to use Abraxane since my mother has already seen taxol?
Avatar m tn I have GI appointment at the end of the month. Is it possible to have a stomach ulcer for 6 months?
Avatar f tn Possibilities that may need to be considered include gastritis, peptic ulcer, chest wall inflammation etc. With the symptoms the possibility of cancer cannot be ruled out though there is no reason to specifically suspect it. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Meanwhile you could try some OTC antacids and see if these seem to help.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr. Kaul, thanks so much for your words of advice. I recently had an Upper-GI Endoscopy done, and to my good fortune there was no Esophageal Cancer or even Barrett's Syndrome. However, we did find an unusually high amount of stomach acid and a hint of peptic ulcer. The doctor determined that due to a dysfunctional esophageal sphincter, the acid refluxed and could have done minor damage to my esophagus - causing my dysphagia.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am a 20-year-old male who recently began to develop stomach issues towards the beginning of October. I will try to give you a list of my symptoms: *stomach pain in upper left portion and going up to my chest *indigestion: burping, burning, etc I visited my doctor after a week of these symptoms and he did an exam. He poked and prodded around on my stomach, and it was a bit tender. He said that he had a feeling he knew what it was.
Avatar f tn Endoscopy showed large pyloric ulcer at intersection of small intestine and stomach. Bloating burping hurting now for over a month. Esophagus eroding. Biopsy showed no cancer. Acid reducers aren’t working. Really fatigued.
Avatar m tn I have some questions referring to my dad who is sick. Last night my step-brother called the ambulance because his stomach pain has gotten worse. This is not his first time going to the hospital. This is probably his third or fourth time. The first time he went to the hospital, the doctor told him that he has stomach cancer. Later they said he doesn't have it.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with a stomach ulcer via endoscopy. I’ve been having the symptoms on and off for over a year. I had been taking low dose aspirin everyday for a few years before this, and stopped taking it over 6 months ago. I get a burning/gnawing pain in the center of my upper abdomen that is usually better after I eat a large meal. I get bloating also. It feels worse if I am upset or stressed and also if I do excersize that causes me to tense my ab muscles.
