Nodular Mucosa Stomach
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
Nodular mucosa: Generally speaking, mucosa, or the lining of the GI tract is relatively smooth appearing, with the exception of the small intestine, which appears like numerous fingers projecting from the mucosa. Nodular mucosa is a lumpy-bumpy appearance that can be benign. Generally it would be biopsied to assist in the diagnosis. ...Read more
Diffuse mildly erythematous mucosa without bleeding found in stomach during endoscopy - what does this mean?
Gastritis: This finding May be seen in mild inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis) and is usually treated with a bland diet, avoidance of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine, as well as medication like prilosec or nexium (esomeprazole) for several weeks.

Finally had endoscopy ultrasound was not needed during it he told me, "nodular mucosa in background of erosive esophavatis", don't want ppi rest oflife?
Erosive esophagitis: The presence of erosions in the esophagus is a sign that your GERD is fairly severe. Certainly you should take a PPI at least until the erosions are healed and your symptoms are under good control. After that, some patients can go off of them, particularly if they follow anti-reflux measures assiduously. Many patients do end up requiring long-term medication, however. Good luck. ...Read more
What does the statement "a diffuse are of mucosa in the terminal ileum was nodular" mean. I don't understand the medical language?
Ask GI doc who ordrd: This question's best answered by the GI doctor who performed the procedure & submitted the report.

I got a egd today and waiting on the biopsy results. What does congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis? & normal mucosa?
Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness.

Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H.Pylori, nsaid, etc.). ...Read more

I had egd shows localized nodular mucosa duodenal bulb and hyperemic gastric body. I also have an adrenal tumor on right side. Is this cancer?
Your doctorsknow mor:
It is best to ask your doctor to explain your situation. The egd findings appear unimpressive to me unless you have some symptoms of gastritis.
Your adrenal tumor needs better definition in terms of its size. It is quite common to find small nodules in the adrenals which are mostly benign unless they are bigger than 2-3 cm in size and or you have any symptoms due to hormonal excess. ...Read more
Daughter had egd with abnormal mucosa and nodules in stomach. What is the possible diagnosis? Also how common is stomach cancer in children?
I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount (Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?
Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more

See a GI doc: This is a very specific question, and if you were prescribed Omeprazole for the esophagitis, the prescribing physician should have told you when to retest. In general, it takes several weeks of good anti-acid medication therapy to heal the inflammation, but ask your GI doctor for a more accurate response. I would wait at least 2-3 months ...Read more
