Mucosa Associated Lymphatic Tissue Lymphoma
Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?
Precancer: The antrum is that portion of the lower stomach above the pylorus. Having chronic inflammation with extensive intestinal metaplasia is the precursor for developing gastric cancer. Left alone one would find an eventual gastric ulcer and invasive cancer. Partial gastrectomy would probably be indicated at this time. ...Read more
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
What does it mean to have, as an adult, a "rather large" amount of lymphatic tissue in the nasopharynx? Nasal channels "normal" after endoscopy.
Adenoid hypertrophy: It sounds like your ENT likely saw large adenoids on nasal endoscopy. The adenoid pad is formed by lymphatic tissue and exists on the back wall of the space behind your nasal cavities. Adenoid enlargement is common in young children but unusual in adults.

What to do if I have had a triple by-pass, chronic lymphatic lymphoma and chemotherapy, and I am pre diabetic, can I donate?
Donate what?: Money for a worthy cause you can donate anytime but if you mean blood or organs, I sincerely doubt it. CLL and/or low grade lymphomas are chronic illnesses that will make you ineligible as donor of any tissue (except maybe for research). It's nice of you to think of others, though. Hope you do well. ...Read more
