Had chemo & debulk surgery for 4th stage ovarian cancer had 2 surgery for bowel obstruct now have hernia & bowel obstruction what's my life expectancy?
Variable: While the percentage of patients alive at five years from many stage 4 cancers is low, it is not zero, and you never know which group you are in as an individual. That doesn't mean to ignore the stats, but in the end, you are not a statistic, but an individual. It should be mostly about quality of life rather than quantity for most folks, so don't give up hope, and have an active say in your care. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Very slightly: People with hiatal hernias usually have some gastroesophageal reflux (gerd). Gerd is a risk factor for esophageal cancer. That said, nearly half of the us population has gerd and esophageal cancer although slowly increasing, remains a very rare cancer. If you have reflux you should be followed by a primary care or gastroenterologist, but it is still very unlikely that you will develop cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

8mm module in lower esophagus found from a endoscopy. I also have a hiatal hernia.. Do I have cancer? I'm 23 and relatively try to be healthy.
Probably not: Especially at your age, most often these are little benign tumors, but it's your physician's job to decide. Esophageal cancers usually look nasty and a physician will be suspicious. Ask whether a biopsy was obtained. If so, chances are it will come back benign from the lab. If your physician didn't think it was worth biopsying, it's almost certainly benign. ...Read more

Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more
