Atrophic Mucosa Duodenum
Localized nodularity of the mucosa noted on duodenal bulb. Cold forceps biopsies were performed. What does this mean?
Duodenal nodularity: Mdt045H929 ~ this just7 means that the gastroentologist saw some tissue that looked a tad abnormal and did a biopsy which is standard of practice to do. He will report on the pathology but duodenal cancer is extremely rare. This is due to hyperacidity. Don't worry! Thanks ...Read more

What does prominence of the duodenal mucosa at the junction of the 2nd and 3rd duodenum may reflect redundant mucosa or a small mass or polyp mean?
Gastroenterologist: We're these findings from a gastroscopy or an upper gi series? A direct examination of the duodenum by a gastroscopic examination would differentiate between a growth like a polyp or simply a prominence of nonpathological tissue. A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate the situation and advise you. ...Read more
I had egd shows localized nodular mucosa duodenal bulb and hyperemic gastric body. I also have an adrenal tumor on right side. Is this cancer?
Your doctorsknow mor:
It is best to ask your doctor to explain your situation. The egd findings appear unimpressive to me unless you have some symptoms of gastritis.
Your adrenal tumor needs better definition in terms of its size. It is quite common to find small nodules in the adrenals which are mostly benign unless they are bigger than 2-3 cm in size and or you have any symptoms due to hormonal excess. ...Read more
Just got an egd done and it says normal esophagus & duodenum but diffuse erythema and friability of the mucosa in the antrum. What does it mean?
It means Gastritis: The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflammed stomach" which can derive from both acid ; non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, h. Pylori infection, atrophic ; hypersecretory problems. Try acid blockers ; diet modification, recommended by your doctor. ...Read more
Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. No malignancy.
Can develop Ca: The presence of h pylori with inflammation is a precursor of the potential to develop a somach malignancy or duodenal lymphoma. The bug has a toxin that causes ulceration at specific sites in the stomach. When ulcer is healing it is not with normal cells surrounding the ulcer but from influx of marrow stem cells. The h pylori toxin then attacks the stem cells to transform them to Ca. ...Read more

GERD with Esophagitis
Erythematous mucosa in :
1. Lower 3rd esophagus
3. Duodenum 1 (mild)
wht does all this mean?
Something serious? Heal time
The first part: Is quite straight-forward. GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) with inflammation of the lower 3rd of the esophagus, antrum (lower) stomach and first part of small intestine (duodenum) was found. I believe PAN 40 is pantoprazole 40 mg, a proton-pump inhibitor. Don't know about PAN L and PAN MPS. Moderately serious to have inflammation in all 3 sites;should heal with proper treatment of 6-8 weeks ...Read more
I had a Whipple in 2009, for villous adenoma of the duodenum. Should I worry about my pancreas? It is now atrophic. Only head was removed.
I did recently an enoscopy and in the result it says: duodenal mucosal atrophy but no pathology.
Can it still be celiac disease? What else can it be?
Diagnosis of Celiac disease can usually be made by blood tests. Small intestinal biopsy may be used to confirm the diagnosis and monitor the response to treatment. You have not provided sufficient information for a diagnostic opinion. Please consult this site for information.

What can I do to get rid of edematous mucosa in the rectum? I eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables daily and exercise regularly.
Probably surgery: If you are seeing "edematous mucosa" then it is falling out and will need to be removed or sutured back in place. "Mucosa" describes the lining of the rectum that should be well up inside the anus and not visible to you. If it is being seen with an anoscope it still suggests some type of injury, probably from prolapsing (falling down) into the sphincters. Hemorrhoid banding might work. ...Read more

I have recently gone in for a colonoscopy today and the dr. said that there is granular mucosa in my colon. Can you tell me what this means?
In and of itself,: Granular mucosa in the colon is benign. The mucosa is the lining surface in the colon and is normally smooth and pink. Granularity indicates irregularity and disruption of the color, sometimes leading to erosion or ulceration. This COULD be an early sign of inflammation in the bowel, such as ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease. Your Doctor will advise next steps for you. Stay well:) ...Read more
