Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?

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

What is nodular mucosa?

What is nodular mucosa?

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

What does erythematous mucosa in the stomach mean on an endoscopy?

What does erythematous mucosa in the stomach mean on an endoscopy?

Gastropathy: Red mucosa could be due to chemicals like naprosyn, aleve, (naproxen) asa or bacterial induced gastritis. Biopsies can show if there is bacteria present. Usually the red mucosa is a non-specific finding. Read more

Diffuse mildly erythematous mucosa without bleeding found in stomach during endoscopy - what does this mean?

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. Also irritants like aspirin and NSAIDS like ibuprofen or Aleve are avoided. Your gastroenterologist is best qualified to answer your question and advise you, however. Read more

Upper EGD came back "normal studay" but below said stomach had chronic inflammation and duedenum had squamous mucosa but no abnormailty. What does mean?

Upper EGD came back "normal studay" but below said stomach had chronic inflammation and duedenum had squamous mucosa but no abnormailty. What does mean?

Irritation...: It means you have had some inflammation which is usually caused by excessive acid production. It seems they didn't find any evidence of malignancy (cancer) or ulcers but you have been suffering of ongoing irritation which in the future could lead to other more problematic symptoms. Make sure you stay away from fatty foods, spicy foods, too much sauce, caffeine which can worsen the irritation. Read more

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?

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?

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. The GI doctor should explain its significance (i.e., if it correlates with your symptoms or not). "Diffuse" = widespread. "Terminal ileum" = region of small intestine near appendix / large intestine. "Nodular" means forming a mass or round spherical shape (nodule). TTYD. Good luck & thanks for asking Read more

What does mild erythema of the gastir mucosa in the antrum and body of stomach mean in an egd?

Likely normal: Most patients will have some mild erythema in the stomach outlet. Redness of the mucosa represents gastritis, or inflammation of the lining of the stomach that can be reactive to smoke, alcohol, or medications and food. See your doctor for followup and discussion. Read more

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?

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. Based on the your description of the endoscopic appearance of your stomach lining it sounds like you have a patchy mild inflammation there. 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?

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

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?

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

I have a couple of hard, nodular lumps in upper abdomen 3 years painful if pressed pain is sharp and goes through to back. Is it a lipoma?

Need 2 Be Seen: Lipomas are the most common cause of lumps under the skin (in the subq space), however they rarely cause shooting pain on palpation as you describe. I suggest that you make an appointment with your primary care doctor to help sort this out. Read more

Hepc, cirohis, CT scan -liver shows eviden of nodular surface, hypertrophied caudate & left lobe. Normal calibre abdominal aorta. How bad is it?

Hepc, cirohis, CT scan -liver shows eviden of nodular surface, hypertrophied caudate & left lobe. Normal calibre abdominal aorta. How bad is it?

You: Have evidence of cirrhosis. A gastroenterologist can give you guidance regarding how well your liver is functioning, ways to slow further liver damage, and surveillance to detect any developing liver tumors (such as hepatoma). If you don't drink and take of yourself there is every likelihood of many more years of life. Read more
