I have gastritis and duodenitis. I have tested neg for H pylori. I get acid a lot. What else would cause this?

Causes of gastritis. The suffix "itis" means "inflammation". The prefix "gastro" means "stomach." the term "gastritis" thus means an "inflamed stomach." The term is often used imprecisely to mean stomach upset, which can derive from both acid & non-acid causes, slow emptying of the stomach, H.pylori infection, atrophic &hypersecretory problems. Start with acid blockers, diet modification, avoid alcohol/tobacco. Read more...

Multiple causes. Could be your gallbladder. Could also be gastritis, duodenitis, peptic ulcer disease. You need to be evaluated by a doctor to rule out the gallbladder. The other processes can be treated concurrently in hopes of relieving the symptoms while further working it up. Read more...

Barium meal today was normal apart from small sliding hiatal hernia/ oesophagitis and mild duodenitis, h pylori was negative also. Still scared it is stomach cancer, is this a reasonable fear. 22 yr m?

Very unlikely. Most cases of stomach cancer are not in 22 year olds, are associated with long-term h pylori infection, or associated with rare familial cancer syndromes. Most would show some abnormality of stomach on barium study. Inflammation of esophagus and duodenum are common causes of upper abdominal symptoms. Follow up with your doc, but does not sound like stomach cancer, based on info provided. Read more...
Very unlikely. It sounds as if you have had a pretty thorough evaluation, barium swallow, upper endoscopy (egd). Given you age, lack of evidence of malignancy on egd, you should feel confident that this is not stomach cancer. Your gastroenterologist probably has you on some proton-pump inhibitor or histamine blocker. Give this time to work. Read more...
No. Symptoms of stomach cancer are very non-specific and include epigastic pain, nausea and weight loss at an advanced stage. The diagnostic choice of study is upper endoscopy. If there is no tumor seen on egd, the symptoms are likely from a process other than cancer. Microscopic cancer (not visible on endoscopy) unlikely would cause any symptoms. Read more...

I have mild chronic duodenitis. Can gas cause pain in chest left area. I am afraid of heart problem. As I have asthma also.

Unlikely. Suspect that it is more likely from bloating and perhaps air swallowing (uncontrolled asthma may at times cause that). If you don't have a family history of heart disease or risk factors such as high blood lipid, high blood pressure, or high blood sugar, it would be highly unusual for you to develop a heart disease. See your doctor to find out. Read more...
