I had egd shows localized nodular mucosa duodenal bulb and hyperemic gastric body.I also have an adrenal tumor on right side. Is this cancer?

Should have seen ok: Most of the time, even if there is some food in the stomach, the endoscopy can be completed and the duodenum visualized adequately. Certainly a biopsy for h.Pylori could be done.

And this you can't tell by size alone but need to look at cells under a microscope and also evaluate for any other nodules or masses. ...Read more
