Endoscopy Pictures Of Stomach Cancer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Sometimes but not: Often. Egd examines esophagus, stomach, duodenum (technically small intestine, but only the very first part), and sometimes the first portion of jejunum, which is the true small intestine. The small intestine is about 30 feet long. Then there is the large intestine, or colon, for which you need colonoscopy. The middle 29+ feet is not accessble via endocsopy. ...Read more
Some areas.: Upper endoscopy can look at the esophagus, stomach, and at least the 1st portion of the duodenum; also the opening where the bile exits. It cannot look at and therefore cannot diagnose problems in the remainder of the duodenum, the ileum or the jejunum. However, capsule endoscopy can look at these other areas. ...Read more
Can barretts metaplasia (no dysplasia) progress directly to adenocarcinoma of esophegus within 4 months of egd scopy?
Unlikely: Does your question signal that it did happen? Even if biopsies are negative for dysplasia, biopsies are just that, biopsies of a larger lesion. Biopsies always have the chance of having sampling error...Meaning the most severe part of the lesion was not sampled. The risk of sampling error would go up with a larger lesion than was minimally, and not systematically, biopsied. ...Read more
Why did radiologist push on my small intestine, spleen, and gallbladder (while looking at screen) at the end of upper GI series ("barium swallow")?
CT Scan Findings: Ct scan is not the best study to detect colon cancer or ulcers. Although a ct scan may show a large sized colon cancer, the sensitivity of this is greatly reduced without the administration of oral contrast. Ulcers are typically not seen on ct scan. The best diagnostic study for both of these would be an endoscopy and colonoscopy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can normal CT scan, stool and blood tests, colonoscopy, gallblader us and hida scan, upper endoscopy (gerd, gastritis) rule out pancreatic cancer?
An xray: Lower GI series or barium enema is an xray performed after a 1-2 day cleansing of your bowel, wherein a radiologist gives you an enema with radio opaque contrast or barium and takes xrays of the inside of your colon looking for polyps or tumors or inflammation. It is a reasonable although not the best test for colon cancer screening. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not exactly: Stomach cancer and esophageal cancers are different. But a stomach cancer sometimes can be located right near the esophagus too. The type of cancer cells can be similar in both cancers, but esophagus cancer calls can also be a different type. They are generally treated differently with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and would need different type of surgery too. ...Read more

HAD ENDOSCOPY DONE RESULT ESOPHAGEAL MOBILITY DISTURBANCE(BIOPSY) ERYTHEMA IN THE ATRUM COMPATIBLE WITH GASTRITIS (BIOPSY) EVIDENCE OF FUNDOPLICATION?
Irritation: Results like this are fairly common and not specifically indicative of any particular disease. Often the Gastroenterologist will try an acid blocker to relieve symptoms. One of the main reasons they do the biopsies is to rule out cancer, and nothing you noted above sounds like any kind of cancer. Discuss the findings, and their relation to your symptoms, with the GI Dr. who performed the endo ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount(Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?
Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more
