I just asked a question about a hiatal hernia in the cardia. I have another question about erosion in the antrum. Can some answer my question, please?

Hiatal hernia: Not sure what your question is, but a hiatal hernia is when the normal opening for the esophagus in the diaphragm stretches out, and allows the stomach to herniate in to the chest. The top part of the stomach next to the valve at the esophagus is called the cardia, and if this were the only part herniated, it would be a very small hernia, not responsible for ulcers in the antrum. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Diarrea ulcers: Simon, have you had previous gastric surgery with a vagotomy, because if so this is "dumping syndrome" and you should see the surgeon who did surgery. Has Zollinger-Ellison syndrome been excluded? Otherwise, rule out infectious causes and excessive treatment with H2 blockers like Tagamet, Nexium etc can cause diarrhea. If you are losing more water than intake you shd go to ER thanks ...Read more

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. Biopsies taken. Is cancer likely?

Wait for biopsy,,,,,: At this point it's inconclusive to say and a clearer idea of this can be obtained once the biopsy results come back. Most stomach cancers are characterized by raised and thickened ulcer margins which you apparently don't have. Other cancers there are associated with blood disorders like lymphomas and have gastric thickening. Based on this cancer isn't likely but again, the bx gives more info.. ...Read more

What kind of followup should simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum have?

What kind of followup should simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum have?

Nothing special: I see that you're already taking vitamin B12 and perhaps this has to do with your stomach no longer making acid, explaining the neuroendocrine hyperplasia. Ask your physician how often you need to be endoscoped for whatever you were endoscoped for. Best wishes. ...Read more

What is chronic gastritis in your antrum

Define "gastritis": Gastro means stomach; -itis means inflammation (so "gastritis" means an irritated stomach lining). The "antrum" is the last part of the stomach. "chronic" means longstanding, but is also a term applied both to endoscopic appearance of stomach inflammation as well as what the biopsies of your stomach tell us. ...Read more

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

What does simple neuroendocrine hyperplasia in the antrum mean?

Need followup: Hyperplasia is the first of 3 stages in the process of tumor formation, the next stage is dysplasia and then the neoplasia = tumor. There are a few types of neuroendocrine cells in the stomach, depending on which area of the stomach, those in the antrum are G and D cells. So, neuroendocrine hyperplasia of the antrum means that some of those cells are undergoing abnormal proliferation (growth). ...Read more
