Common Questions and Answers about Ulcer stomach cancer


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.
422924 tn?1331764319 i had a endoscopy done last week i was diagnose with reflux and a ulcer i was given dexilant 60mg.i had a biopsy on my stomach and it tested negatve for H Pylori anyone know how long it takes for a ulcer to go away? is there any websites that tells you what to eat and not to eat for the ulcer.
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 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.
Avatar f tn Part of me is glad to finally getting this done as I have had stomach problems ever since this anxiety stuff started and I already had an upper GI that came back normal. I don't want anything to eat, have an upset stomach and (not to be gross) my bowel movements are all over the place. I go from diarrhea ,to not being able to go at all, to going all day but no diarrhea, just constantly having to have a BM. Sorry for being right to the point.
Avatar f tn My ankles swell up and tingle.... Doctor thought maybe a hernia or an ulcer? My stomach burns sometimes. I have seen over 15 doctors and am started to lose hope.... Thank you for taking the time to read my question. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I think he is being honest with you, and but they are rquired to biopsy any abnormalities (even an ulcer). I have never heard of a gastric ulcer being cancerous, and there are many things that can cause these. I had one caused by taking Advil for 10 days, I actually vomited some blood.
