Infection: Gastric oncocytic and antral mucosa = type of stomach tissue seen under the microscope H.P. = Helicobactor pylori, a type of bacteria that causes inflammation and ulcers in the stomach; a stain has been done to make the bacteria stand out Active chronic gastritis= the inflammation seen in the stomach You should do well with treatment! ...Read more

Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?

Precancer: The antrum is that portion of the lower stomach above the pylorus. Having chronic inflammation with extensive intestinal metaplasia is the precursor for developing gastric cancer. Left alone one would find an eventual gastric ulcer and invasive cancer. Partial gastrectomy would probably be indicated at this time. ...Read more

Uncertain: Pathology needs to be tested further to determine whether the lymphoid tissue is polyclonal or monoclonal. I am sure your gastroenterologist has already put this in motion. Call him/her for those additional results after those tests have been reported. ...Read more

Antral mucosa with extremely focal chronic active gastritis. What is the treatment for this? Can it come back with stress?

Gastritis: This should resolve with the taking of prolosec type medication. However I feel that it's also advisable to avoid spicey foods, eliminate tobacco,alcohol and minimize caffeine as well as avoidance of gastric irritating medications like aspirins,Aleve,Advil,corticosteroids,etc. Chronic stress can be a contributing factor. ...Read more

Not a huge risk,but:: RISK IS INCREASED BUT NOT HUGE. In one study the risk of metaplasia > gastric cancer was 1 IN 39 PATIENTS OVER A 20 YEAR PERIOD. FACTORS INCREASING RISK: tobacco smoking, salt and salt preserved foods, processed meat and fish(label will list "nitrites"),diets low in fruits and vegetables, H.pylori infection, obesity. AVOIDING THESE RISK FACTORS WILL REDUCE YOUR CHANCE OF GASTRIC CANCER. ...Read more

Irritation...: It means you have had some inflammation which is usually caused by excessive acid production. It seems they didn't find any evidence of malignancy( cancer) or ulcers but you have been suffering of ongoing irritation which in the future could lead to other more problematic symptoms. Make sure you stay away from fatty foods, spicy foods, too much sauce, caffeine which can worsen the irritation. ...Read more
