Does h. Pylori cause stomach cancer?

Does h. Pylori cause stomach cancer?

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. ...Read more

Can h pylori cause globus sensation?

Can h pylori cause globus sensation?

Probably not: Globus sensation can be caused by several different possibilities. Gastroesophageal reflux is a common cause , however, h pylori gastritis is not.

I recommend that patients undergo an egd (stomach scope) to rule out any underlying conditions such as a peptic ulcer, esophagitis or hiatal hernia. ...Read more

What can cause 10+ mos chronic abdominal pain? Blood tests, barium swallow, gastroscopy, gallbladder all normal. No h. pylori. No diarrhea or vomiting
