Dysplasia cells in the lining of my stomach. What is the likely hood of turning to cancer. I see my dr in 6 months.

Dysplasia cells in the lining of my stomach. What is the likely hood of turning to cancer. I see my dr in 6 months.

It really depends: The chances of turning into cancer depends on many factors, the main one being if it is high or low grade. Other factors that may need to be addressed would be a possible infection such as h pylori playing a role or excessive acid production. I would recommend you clarify precisely what the finding was and what the treatment and follow up should be with the diagnosing physician before 6 months. ...Read more

Could you tell me what happens after colon cancer gets into the stomach lining?

Could you tell me what happens after colon cancer gets into the stomach lining?

Advanced: Sometimes a colon cancer can become large enough that it invades into nearby structures, such as the stomach. Often surgery becomes necessary to remove the colon cancer & remove part of the other structures it is attached to, if safe. Part of of the stomach can be removed if the colon cancer is otherwise contained. Chemotherapy likely indicated after surgery. ...Read more

Had complete hysterectomy, was told can get cancer in the lining of vagina, so therefore pap smears should continue after hysterectomy but every year?

Had complete hysterectomy, was told can get cancer in the lining of vagina, so therefore pap smears should continue after hysterectomy but every year?

hysterectomy and pap: If the hysterectomy was because of cancer or there was cancer or precancer of your cervix then there is a real risk the reasons for the cancer can also be present for the vagina hence testing the vagina and looking at the vulva is recommended. It might not have to be every year, depends on your particular diagnosis, adding an hpv test might allow fewer pap tests but the vulva can get cancer too. ...Read more

Uterine lining is 9 mm and some fluid. Are these strong signs of uterine cancer?

Not necessarily: Uterine thickening of 9 mm is not bad enough to suspect cancer. Your doctor will guide you further but Cancer is unlikely to be the cause of your Ultrasound reported findings. ...Read more

My endometrial lining is 19.2 with a possible polyp. They are doing a hysteroscopy on the 11th. What chance is it of being cancer they are looking for?

My endometrial lining is 19.2 with a possible polyp. They are doing a hysteroscopy on the 11th. What chance is it of being cancer they are looking for?

They ARE looking: If the radiologist thinks it's a polyp, if it is cancer (odds are it's not, but there's a chance) is has probably not gotten very far. They are of course concerned this is cancer and we need tissue to find out. Let's hope for the best -- you were wise to permit the workup. ...Read more

Endometrial Cancer. Endometrial biopsy normal, lining is at 15. What does this mean?

Endometrial Cancer.  Endometrial biopsy normal, lining is at 15.  What does this mean?

I don't: understand: do you have endometrial cancer? Then the lining and the biopsy are irrelevant. Are you be tested for endometrial CA? The normal biopsy is reassuring, the thickness is not specific. Glad to give a better answer if you clarify what you are asking. ...Read more

Just found out my uterine lining is thick and I have a polyp. Is this a sign of cancer?

Not yet: You do need to get a diagnosis. Don't procrastinate and you should be fine; if this is cancer and you've kept up surveillance, you are still by far more likely to have a good outcome. ...Read more
