I'm just wondering, if you had a stomache tumor how would you know?

Pain or bleeding: The initial onset of gastric malignancies were in the prepyloric or lesser curvature region. We now recognize the major cause as due to H.pylori. This bug causes ulceration of the mucosa more near the upper part of the stomach. The ulcer is healed by bone stem cells migrating into the site and transformed to tumor by the H.pylori toxin. One finds bleeding of an unhealed ulcer or performation ...Read more

Neoplasms (Definition)

What does it mean when a stomach tumor has blood and pus excreting from it?

What does it mean when a stomach tumor has blood and pus excreting from it?

Malignant tumor: Nodular lesions of the stomach such as GIST or LeiomyoSa rarely have active bleeding. The latter occurs from ulcerating malignancies especially prepyloric or along gastric curvature. Such lesions that do not heal on meds require resection since they invade blood vessels to bleed and frequently have helicobacter pylori which can induce the infection with pus formation. ...Read more

5 yr healthy f frequent urination for a wk dr did urinalysis normal should I worry about tumor pressing on bladder he felt her stomach ok what to do?

Frequent Urination: It appears that a UTI is ruled out, but sometimes diet, especially certain foods high in sugars when they are digested and, of course, sweet beverages, will make her urinate more. A tumor is vanishingly remote as a possible cause, but there could be developmental issues with her urethra or bladder that contribute. If the sx don't clear, i suggest an evaluation by a urologist. ...Read more

How fast does wilms tumor grow and after 6 months would it be noticed by a physical exam of the stomach or would the ultrasound show wilms tumor after 6 months thanks very much?

Here are some...: Do you have a strong family history of Wilm's tumor, which is very rare? Does the child you might have concerned have congenital anomalies like retardation, defect of iris, etc. ?

Maybe, but: Medication to treat the brain tumor or irradiation could cause G.I. Problems, so best to further discuss with your doctor.

Confused about abdominal ultrasound. I know it sees the abdominal area but does it also see the colon, stomach and si for any masses or tumors?

Confused about abdominal ultrasound.  I know it sees the abdominal area but does it also see the colon, stomach and si for any masses or tumors?

Abdominal ultrasound: There are multiple diagnostic tests that doctors can order to evaluate for abdominal complaints. The abdominal ultrasound uses sound waves to penetrate the abdominal wall, and like a fish finder, shows a picture of what's under the skin. The problem with ultrasound waves, is that they don't penetrate air very well, so organs containing air, like the intestine and stomach don't show up very well. ...Read more
