Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Probably not: Reviews of the current scientific evidence does not show a strong link between coffee consumption and stomach, liver and pancreatic cancer. It may protect against endometrial (uterine) cancer. Coffee has a number of photochemically which may be protective. But always remember moderation is always best as excessive coffee consumption can cause gastritis, reflux and palpitations. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't see how: Unless you handle carcinogenic substances and don't wash your hands, making you ingest them indadvertedly. Not a good habit, though. Looks bad and messes up your fingers. Been there, done that. If I could get rid of it, certainly you can. Read more
Possibly.: Gastritis is inflammation of the lining of the stomach. Gastritis can be caused by irritation due to excessive alcohol use, chronic vomiting, stress, or the use of certain medications, such as aspirin. Gastritis may also be caused by helicobacter pylori, a bacteria that can live in the stomach. Without treatment, this infection can lead to ulcers and, in some people, stomach cancers. Read more
After eradicating Helicobactor (Hb), how much will stomach cancer likelihood (caused by Hb) be reduced?
Does h plyori cause most stomach cancers? What are the chances of getting stomach cancer without h plyori?
Yes, it can.: H. Pylori is a type of bacteria that likes to grow on the inside of the stomach. This bacteria causes irritation of the stomach wall lining. The body tries to heal, but a vicious cycle of irritation and healing gets started. Over time, the regenerating stomach lining cells become disorganized in their growth which can (not always) lead to cancer growth. H. Pylori therapy can reduce cancer risk.

Hmmm: Not that I know of but if someone is using lots of antacids, it means he/she has persistent symptoms of gastritis or reflux. That person could have Barrett's esophagus or H. Pilori infection, both of which can be associated with different cancers of the upper GI tract. Probably be wise to be checked. Read more

Yes, unsure stat: Chronic h. Pylori infection/gastritis can cause a type of gastric tumor called malt--mucosa associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, but the incidence is not known. Long term gastritis by other causes also increase risk of gastric cancer, just as in folks with chronic reflux causing esophagitis/barrett's esophagus etc. Which increases cancer risks. So, follow up with doc regularly. Good luck. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Indirectly, possible: Bulimia results in chronic self-induced vomiting -- which can cause inflammation and damage to stomach and esophagus. If this is severe and chronic enough, cellular changes could ultimately result in cancer. Other damages -- like GI bleeding and electrolyte disturbances, etc -- might occur sooner, though.

Unlikely: While this is very unlikely, the more I see, the more I am amazed. Some things happen that don't make sense. If you are talking about yourself, stomach cancer at age 37 is also very rare, particularly in the United States. If you are concerned however, see your primary care or GI doc that did the endoscopy for a follw-up to discuss any changes. Read more
