Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Do you have any weight loss ,difficulty or pain on swallowing ?
What is your main concern which scares you ?
Thanks for the information
Your symptoms are most likely due to long standing acid reflux disease
Cancer usually cause symptoms like weight loss and difficulty in swallowing and there can be blood in vomitus or stool presenting as black stools
I agree that you should have an endoscopy to check the status of stomach and also to get tested for H.Pylori which is a common bug involved in such situations
Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification
If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work
I have seen the reports
Mild iron deficiency can be due to long standing stomach problem
Absence of blood in stool is a good sign plus the fact that you dont seem to have anemia
I am expecting chronic gastritis on your endoscopy and not a cancer
Do you have any more question
If done please leave a POSITIVE RATING so that i may be credited
Your hemoglobin is within normal limit so it indicates you are not anemic
H.Pylori is associated with tumor of stomach and good to have a negative result
Long term celiac also can cause malignancy and good to have it ruled out
