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?

EDG findings: Adrenal tumors are often benign, ct/ultrasound is often beneficial in the determination. Your egd findings suggest gastritis (erythema) , and nodular duodenitis. Both are usually benign in your age group. Occasionally a biopsy of these areas may warrant repeat endoscopic evaluation in the future if the pathology suggests tissue changes that could be premalignant. ...Read more

Egd done, was told stomach still have some food, given that, would have they seen the duodenum bulb? Or they will order another egd?Biopsy 4 h.Pl ...

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. If there is a lot of food present often the stomach can't be examined well and the scope may need to be repeated. ...Read more

Is a 9mm nodule worst than 1.2 cm nodule?

Is a 9mm nodule worst than 1.2 cm nodule?

Nodules: Usually smaller is better. So in this regard, 9mm (0.9cm) is better than 12mm (1.2cm). However, if we're talking about cancer then another important factor is how aggressive the cancer cells are, i.e., how fast they grow/spread. 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
