Doctor insights on:
Causes Of Duodenal Stricture
Duodenal ulcer and stricture. Abdo pain that goes to left chest and back. Nausea. Anemia. Faintness. Sweating. Runny nose when eating?
Runny nose: I will answer the runny nose part, that has no relation to the other symptoms. Runny nose after eating is called vasomotor rhinitis and can be treated with an antihistamine or anticholinergic nasal spray. Oral antihistamines do not affect it. Ask your doctor for a prescription instead of walking around with tissues all the time.
Not known!: Just like many other Cancers in people, the exact cause of your Cancer is not known. One way to look at is why do some people get sick and others remain well without having any serious illness. It may be just a matter of chance or bad luck.
Many things: A bacterial infection could cause this (helicobacter). Excessive acid production can cause this. Medications (aspirin, ibuprofen) can cause this. Stress can cause this. There are many other causes. Acid peptic disease is the more common cause along with the h. Pylori infection. Treatment is available. Rarely now is surgery needed. Diagnostics are readily available. See a GI doctor.
Duodenum-congenital: The cause is the same, a failure of the process of developing an opening in the duodenum in utero. About 1/3 of the cases are found in children with down syndrome. That is the single most common association. There are children born with both esophageal and duodenal atresia and that is a surgical emergency.
Unknown: No one knows the exact cause of the atresia. The duodenum goes through a phase where is is "solid" and then an opening develops. Something happens and this does not occur correctly. 20-30% of the time it is associated with down syndrome. It is correctalbe with surgery.
Duodenal Ulcers: The most common cause of duodenal ulcer is a stomach infection associated with the helicobacter pylori (h pylori) bacteria. Other risk factors for duodenal ulcers include overuse of alcohol, tobacco, and medications such as Aspirin and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids). Severe illness has also been implicated as a risk factor in the development of duodenal ulcer.See 3 more doctor answers
Normally there: If they mean anything in the clinical context -- and they may -- the pathologist will make a note of it. If extremely abundant, mastocytic enterocolitis is a consideration.
Possibly: This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
No short answer: Everyone has some lymphocytes in their duodenum and as usual normalcy is a bell curve. And you can be on either end or even off of it, if you have a lymphoid follicle in the intestinal wall. You need to talk to your gastroenterologist and ask him if you need other testing and if you are not happy with the answer get a second opinion.
Mutation: Anyone with duodenal adenocarcinoma deserves to be checked for the same genetic mutations that produce colon cancer. Or it may be dumb luck. I hope you have a good result from what I expect will be a surgical intervention.
All possible causes of chronic non-specific inflammation in duodenum (shown in biopsy) in INDIA???
Non specific: I see this frequently and think it has no clinical significance. Don't worry about it.
I have lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propria (Duodenum)? My doc. Didn't know its cause either as it's non-specific. Please help.
Nonspecific.: This represents chronic inflammation but the origin is not clear. You will need to see a specialist of the GI tract to put this into perspective along with your complaints and other physical findings and history.
Causes of chronic non-specific inflammation in duodenum other than celiac disease in INDIA?? please tell about every other possible causes.
Inflammation: Acid, drugs, or trauma, infections (H. pylori), ulcers, internal bleeding, diverticulii. Advanced cases with other symptoms may signal a more serious and chronic underlying condition like Crohn's Disease or tumors.
Which tests are needed to be positive for proper diagnosis of TROPICAL SPRUE in INDIA? As I have chronic inflammation in duodenum but cause is unknown.
Blunt trauma: If you have undergone surgical repair of a ruptured duodenum, you need to wait until you are completely healed before playing soccer again. If you return to play too early, there is a risk of reopening the surgical wound should you fall. I hope that you recover quickly. Wait until your surgeon clears you to return to soccer, since he sees you regularly post-operatively and knows your condition.
Causes of lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propria (Duodenum) other than celiac in india as my celiac test came negative twice???
Not clear: This sound some what ominous. The celiac test is only for people with gluten allergy. I would be concerned over some type of lymphona. One type might be MALT lymphoma. Make sure you are getting the opinion of gastroenterologist. And heme / oncology. This type of problem can cause a pseudo-obstruction follow up closely.
