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

Probably IBS: I agree with that your G.I. Doctor that this may be irritable bowel syndrome and not also have colitis crohn's disease or other types of active colitis. Lymphoid hyperplasia is a very common condition in the colon and terminal ileum. Chronic inflammation is very nonspecific and when mild with out features of autoimmune disease is often a variant of normal. ...Read more

Vascular Ehlers-Dan: If by veds you mean vascular ehlers-danlos syndrome, it is unlikely that a biopsy would be negative. Genetic testing exists to confirm a suspected diagnosis if the first biopsies were all negative and the index of suspicion is still very high. ...Read more

PSA density: Can describe whether the size of your gland explains the psa. The negative biopsy says they did not find the cancer, but it can also mean they missed it. I would repeat the psa and establish a pattern. You should refrain from sex a week or 2 before repeating the psa. If the psa continues to rise, repeat the biopsies. ...Read more

Tb skin test negative, quentform TB test negative, bone marrow biopsy results indicative of TB (reacts to ziehl niehlssen), PCR negative. How come?

Tb skin test negative, quentform TB test negative, bone marrow biopsy results indicative of TB (reacts to ziehl niehlssen), PCR negative. How come?

No...actually: The zn stain is a broad stain for acid fast bacilli of which mycobacterium tuberculosis is one of many. The specific tests like quantiferon or the pcr test are against you having tb. The culture is the "gold standard" but you will need to wait for it. It might turn out be a cousin of TB and that too will grow out of culture. Stay on TB meds until they are certain of the AFB positive organism. ...Read more
