Inflammation: Inflammation of the esophagus can be a precursor for cancer. Inflammation of the esophagus and stomach can mimic or hide cancer. It was smart to get endoscopy. Your doctor did a good job biopsying the worrisome areas. If the biopsies come back benign, then you will be treated and observed. Well done. Your working diagnosis is inflammation which is treated with medicines. ...Read more

Have Crohns. GI wants to do check-up colonscopy. Unilateral leg swelling w/ vein stick out; MRI, vein ultrasound, ABI, norm. Proceed with colonoscopy?
Yes: Sometimes there is a microperforation with Crohns and a locatlized inflammatory process is set up where DVT occurs within the femoral or external iliac vein on the left side. This could produce the unilateral leg swelling which I assume would be on the left. If this proved to be such as on pelvic CT then anticoag and even a cava umbrella might be necessary and of course the colonoscopy. ...Read more

Is Crohn's disease hard to diagnose? Colonoscopy EGD are norm beside minor inflamed cecum and ileum. Dr wants to do capsule test. So many tests!
Some times it can be: Most crohns affect the terminal ileum as well as the cecum. However as crohns can affect any part of the gi tract, a capsule endoscopy is helpful to find other lesions. My preference is to do a ct or MRI enterography, especially in an untreated crohns patient who I suspect may have tight areas (strictures). Hope this helps! ...Read more

Probably: Colon cancer is unlikely in your age group, but other GI and colon diseases can also cause such symptoms. Have you had your gallbladder evaluated?
