Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?

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

Metaplasia (Definition)

"metaplasia" refers to one tissue type undergoing a change to another, such as bronchial lining (which is usually a single layer of cells, "respiratory epithelium" becoming multi-layered and heavily keratinized, so-called squamous metaplasia. This is common in smokers. Other such changes can produce tissue such as ...Read more

What does this mean?Endometrial biopsy:benign proliferative endometrium with ciliated cell metaplasia without hyperplasia or malignancy

What does this mean?Endometrial biopsy:benign proliferative endometrium with ciliated cell metaplasia without
hyperplasia or malignancy

Normal : It's benign tissue that shows estrogen effect (proliferative endometrium), cell changes that are benign (ciliated metaplasia) & no precancerous or cancerous cells. It's normal and usually means you can avoid major surgery if you have bleeding. Consider hormonal management or an ablation if you have bleeding problems. Take care. ...Read more

What does increase cellularity of lamina propria w eosin, lymphoid nod, and paneth cell metaplasia mean in colonic biopsy of terminal ileum?

What does increase cellularity of lamina propria w eosin, lymphoid nod, and paneth cell metaplasia mean in colonic biopsy of terminal ileum?

Chronic inflammation: Paneth cell metaplasia occurs when the bowel mucosa undergoes chronic inflammatory damage and then regenerates. The findings are commonly seen in association with inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or crohn's). ...Read more

I recently had a FNA of my thyroid nodule. The results showed "benign, hyperplastic nodule with extensive Hurthle cell metaplasia". Should I worry?

I recently had a FNA of my thyroid nodule. The results showed "benign, hyperplastic nodule with extensive Hurthle cell metaplasia".  Should I worry?

Needs surgery: see your doctor. You need a referral to a surgeon. Hurtle cell can be benign or malignant. It is impossible to tell whether it is benign or cancerous on a fine needle aspiration. You need surgery to remove that side of your thyroid in order to know100% if it is one or the other. ...Read more

Had a colonoscopy and the biopsies showed a change is the cell type, called interstinal metaplasia. What does that mean?

Need follow up: Metaplasia means area of biopsy , did not have normal looking mucosa , cells are changing , it does not mean cancer , still cell are normal cells , if unchecked theses areas may transform to malignant cells , if cluster of cancer cells are formed , if they are not invading to adjacent membrane is called ' in situ cancer ' earliest possible stage .Do not worry just follow your doctors advise , . ...Read more

Hyperplasia & metaplasia & chronic inflammatory cell infiltration into the stroma = carcinoma?

Hyperplasia & metaplasia & chronic inflammatory cell infiltration into the stroma = carcinoma?

Not yet: Hyperplasia is a lot of benign cells that are not yet malignant. Metaplasia is transformation of one benign cell type into another benign cell type. "dysplasia" or "atypical hyperplasia" would be a warning of premalignancy. The chronic inflammatory cells are not cancer. This is a benign biopsy -- either no cancer or it was not at the biopsy site. Please follow up as appropriate. ...Read more

Hyperplasia & metaplasia & chronic inflammatory cell infiltration into the stroma = carcinoma?

Hyperplasia & metaplasia & chronic inflammatory cell infiltration into the stroma = carcinoma?

No: The description you provided is not consistent with a diagnosis of carcinoma. It is more consistent with changes due to chronic inflammation. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
