Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain

Colon cancer age 30?? RUQ pain, fecal occult test negative- CT- Normal- (GI tract WNL no obstruction or perforation) should I get colonoscopy for pain

Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated? Remember, colon cancer has minimal symptoms and CT is NOT a great test for it. In sum though low yield I would likely recommend colonoscopy to you based on what I've read. ...Read more

I'm seeing blood after defecating no abdominal pain or other signs of sickness , can digestive enzimes + probiotics bacteria be the cause?Male 29 y.

I'm seeing blood after defecating no abdominal pain or other signs of sickness , can digestive enzimes + probiotics bacteria be the cause?Male 29 y.

No.: I do not believe the digestive enzymes and probiotics are the causative agents. It sounds more like a very common problem of hemorrhoids. I would suggest seeing a proctologist to confirm this since I am unable to see the problem and there can be other causes which would need treatment.. ...Read more

How do internal factors affect external symptoms? Could imbalanced colon show as red nose? Bloating, irregular movements only colon symptoms-no pain

How do internal factors affect external symptoms?  Could imbalanced colon show as red nose?  Bloating, irregular movements only colon symptoms-no pain

= A Dx of exclusion: When a GI problem is labelled "functional" it means inflammation, infection, & ischemic pathology, as well as motility disorders have been ruled out. Ruled in are conditions that alter how the gut "senses" pain, distension, & the movement of food or residue. Sounds like you may be describing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but you'd be my first to manifest IBS with a red nose--look 4 other causes. ...Read more

What GI problems beside cc can a colonoscopy/endoscopy identify? Having ongoing problems in GI tract but i keep hearing i'm too young for cc.

IBD: Colonoscopy and egd are also used to evaluate for inflammatory conditions of the bowel as well as infectious conditions. You are not too young for a colonoscopy. You are too young if you are discussing a screening colonoscopy and are average risk for colon cancer. A diagnostic colonoscopy is to evaluate specific symptoms, which serves a different purpose. ...Read more

Can an H Pylori infection (after successful treatment) cause change in bowel habits and pencil thin stools to continue? or cause IBS?

Can an H Pylori infection (after successful treatment) cause change in bowel habits and pencil thin stools to continue? or cause IBS?

Short answer, No: No, pencil thin stools are not caused by H pylori bacteria. You need a colonoscopy or appt. Pencil thin stools could be a sign of colon cancer or colitis (an inflammation or infection of your colon). Call and see your PCP and have them schedule you for a colonoscopy or GI consult. In the meantime, try probiotics. Your intestinal flora (good bacteria) may be imbalanced from those antibiotics. ...Read more

Chronic nausea/vomiting for 1.5 yrs. No anxiety. Had an EGD, gastric empty study, upper GI & bowel followthru, brain MRI- all normal. Possible causes?

N/V: Sounds like most common causes have been ruled out. Do you have bouts related to your menstrual cycle ? Catamenial N/V has been described. Chronic anxiety can also cause this. Medications can be similar. Finally despite normal GES you can have gastric dysmotility, and or gastropersis. GES is not always abnormal. ...Read more

What can cause 10+ mos chronic abdominal pain? Blood tests, barium swallow, gastroscopy, gallbladder all normal. No h. pylori. No diarrhea or vomiting

Several ideas: When a patient has persistent abdominal pain despite negative tests it suggests that either the patient has a less common condition that hasn't been considered or tested for OR that the symptoms aren't due to a physical illness. It is not unusual for patients to experience actual pain in various parts of their bodies from psychological causes. When the mind is treated the pain goes away. ...Read more

What would cause yellow stool? diangosis with gb sludge via mri. Having RUQ pain. 22 weeks preg. Could gb be cause or could it be anxiety related or what?

Possibly: Gallbladder related, particularly if sludge is not allow for appropriate drainage of bile. But it also may be related to dietary changes. Anxiety itself won't cause your stool color to change, it can affect your frequency! If you haven't been evaluated by your doctor and/or your OB then you need to see them sooner rather than later. ...Read more
