Vomiting found Hpylori infected endoscopy shows mild chronic inflammatory cell infiltrate superficial fragments of duodenal mucosa showing lymphoplasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propia. No malignancy.
Can develop Ca: The presence of h pylori with inflammation is a precursor of the potential to develop a somach malignancy or duodenal lymphoma.

The h pylori toxin then attacks the stem cells to transform them to Ca. ...Read more

My last upper scope, showed mild chronic inactive gastritis. Is there a way to resolve this so it isn't a chronic condition? If it is inactive is it still damaging? Is there a cancer risk?
Gastritis: Unfortunately, this is a fairly ambiguous result. .. However, it is normally seen in patients who have a bacterial infection called Helicobacter Pylori. You might want to follow up with your GI doctor to see if a simple breath test might be appropriate to test for this infection. If so, treatment is usually a simple cocktail of antibiotics and acid suppression. Hope this helps! ...Read more

The timing & duration of the condition may differentiate between acute gastritis & chronic gastritis.

I fainted and woke up in ambulance. I was admitted to hospital. They thought I had a stroke. MRI showed mild chronic microvascular disease. I'm 48.
Explanations?: From your description, does NOT seem like you had a stroke, but your docs need to confirm causation.

Get a second opinion if necessary but aim to prevent future spells. ...Read more
