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.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
