Biopsy (Definition)

Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Antrum biopsy showed mild chronic inactive gastritis with focal intestinal metaplasia with no helicobacter organism. Does that mean cancer?

Antrum biopsy showed mild chronic inactive gastritis with focal intestinal metaplasia with no helicobacter organism. Does that mean cancer?

No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the information you provided does not suggest any serious issue and certainly no cancer.

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Is cancer likely?

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Is cancer likely?

Wait for biopsy,,,,,: At this point it's inconclusive to say and a clearer idea of this can be obtained once the biopsy results come back. Most stomach cancers are characterized by raised and thickened ulcer margins which you apparently don't have. Other cancers there are associated with blood disorders like lymphomas and have gastric thickening. Based on this cancer isn't likely but again, the bx gives more info.. ...Read more

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount (Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount (Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more

My doctor took biopsies when he found erythema in the gastric antrum, what could these show?

Redness in stomach: Can mean inflammation or gastritis. The most common cause of inflammation is h. Pylori infection. Redness also occurs in reactive mucosa usually from taking Aspirin or nsaids. These two account for the vast majority of gastric erosions/inflammation. ...Read more

I got a egd today and waiting on the biopsy results. What does congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis? & normal mucosa?

Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness. Based on the your description of the endoscopic appearance of your stomach lining it sounds like you have a patchy mild inflammation there. Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H.Pylori, nsaid, etc.). ...Read more
