Erosions In The Antrum
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›

If you are losing more water than intake you shd go to ER thanks ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
