Biopsy Of Antrum
What does increase cellularity of lamina propria w eosin, lymphoid nod, and paneth cell metaplasia mean in colonic biopsy of terminal ileum?
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
What means focal lymphoid aggregate in lamina propria in antrum of stomach and gastroesophageal junction? No metaplasia or dysplasia.
Not much: If there's a big patch of lymphocytes, it's often due to helicobacter. Your physician will look at the big picture. ...Read more
A histopathology report shows cryptitis ,crypt abscess in rectal biopsy along with duodenal biospy showing lymphocyte infiltrtion with villous atrophy?
Mucosal thickening: Mucosa is the lining of the inner lumen of the bowel. The duodenum and jejunum are the first two segments of the small bowel. Thickening of these tissues can occur with a variety of conditions. It is not clear from you question if this was seen on ct or you plan to have a ct to "verify" its presence. Generally this may be followed up by endoscopy, referred to as egd. See a gastroenterologist. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will capsule endoscopy identify cause of ulcers in terminal ileum seen in colonoscopy. Biopsy confirmed focal ileitis with superficial erosion?
Capsule endoscopy is: For small bowel evaluation where upper or lower endoscopy can't reach. It may give you information regarding the rest of small bowel. Its usually done to look for small bowel lesions or to find the source of a bleed where egd/colonoscopy is negative. In your case the better test is mr enetrography or a ct abd/pel with volumen contrast. Your GI doc should decide on further testing. ...Read more
CT Scan found mesenteric spiculated fibrous mass wrapped around gastric antrum & transverse colon. Type of diagnostic test? Type of Surgeon? Thanks
An MRI is next 2 try: 2 diagnose the growth. Next most likely would be a biopsy. If a needle biopsy is opted for it is done by a radiologist who has special training in interventional radiology. Another way is to have it done laparoscopically, the mass does not sound like it is excisable. Surgeon if needed is a general surgeon. ...Read more
Colonoscopy -small ulcers in the terminal ileum. Biopsy confirms focal ileitis with superficial erosion, but no specific cause identified. What next?
My colonoscopy microscopic diagnosis: transverse colon polyp biopsy: polypoid colonic mucosa with mild nonspecific chronic inflamation...what is this?
Esophageal biopsy:fragments of hyperplastic squamous epithelium with basal zone hyperplasia. What is this? Bad?
In a esophagogastric junction biopsy, what does hyperplastic esophageal squamous mucosa with rare intraepithelial eosinophil mean ?
Not much: This is a benign diagnosis. If there were more eosinophils, we'd be more confident that reflux is present. Hyperplasia doesn't really mean much here. The key is what the biopsy report doesn't mention -- there's evidently no cancer, no severe inflammation or tissue damage. This will be correlated with the other information and a plan implemented. ...Read more
Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Dr. Is looking for?
Pathology cytology report of Left thyroid biopsy says NO malignant cells... changes suggestive of Colloid nodule/ nodular Goiter. What's next?
MNG + cyst: Hello ~ this is a nodule in MNG (multi-nodular goitre). Previously thought to have no risk of Ca and DOMINANT nodule to have 1% risk and solitary nodule 10% risk. Retrospective studies now show up to 13.7% risk of cancer overall in MNG. Thats high. I would see a surgeon to discuss if this warrants thyroidectomy. thanks ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Second portion duodenum biopsy showing presevrd villous architecture with mod. #'s of lymphocytes. They are suggesting subclinical sprue. What mean?
Lymphs where?: A good pathologist would have specified (& probably did) exactly where the lymphocytes were (in the epithelium is more worrisome than in the mucosa), and whether they were the type of t-cell that suggests celiac sprue. You'll get labs for celiac disease and perhaps a trial of a gluten-free diet depending on why you had the biopsy in the first place. ...Read more
HAD ENDOSCOPY DONE RESULT ESOPHAGEAL MOBILITY DISTURBANCE(BIOPSY) ERYTHEMA IN THE ATRUM COMPATIBLE WITH GASTRITIS (BIOPSY) EVIDENCE OF FUNDOPLICATION?
Irritation: Results like this are fairly common and not specifically indicative of any particular disease. Often the Gastroenterologist will try an acid blocker to relieve symptoms. One of the main reasons they do the biopsies is to rule out cancer, and nothing you noted above sounds like any kind of cancer. Discuss the findings, and their relation to your symptoms, with the GI Dr. who performed the endo ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Biopsy of hepatic mass segment 7 and 8 with final diagnosis of Invasive Adenocarcinoma, what does this mean? Colon Cancer?
Possibly: A number of different adenoCa's can spread to liver. Colonoscopy followed by PET/CAT may be needed to determine origin of the metastatic lesion. Once primary is addressed, the liver can be handled since lesions of liver do not spread out of liver but primary's can spread to other sites. Liver then approached by resection, microwave ablation or chemoembolization. ...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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
