Brief Answer:
Hello dear. Please provide further details

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. Welcome to HCM. I have gone through the details.
I would like to know the histopathological diagnosis as well as the exact location of the tumor.
If the tumor is not surgically amenable, we offer a few courses of chemotherapy to downsize it. After that it can be easily taken off. In some cases. radiation can also be used prior to surgery.
Please provide the details so that i can guide you more better.
Thanks and regards

I have had upper GI symptoms for 3 months. Primarily I have pressure under the right portion of my rib cage, excessive gas, pain directly blow my sternum. I have had a HIDA scan which showed slow fill of the common bile duct, a normal upper GI series a CT scan that showed a 1cm mass in my duodenum and most recently an EGD. The initial findings on the EGD are as follows:
Hiatus Hernia
Chronic Duodentis - diffuse mild inflammation characterized by granularity was found i n the 2nd part of the duodenum. Piopsy with a cold forceps was performed for histology.
ICD Codes used for billing were:
535.60 duodenitis (without mention of hemorrhage)
239.0 Neoplasm of unspecified nature of digestive system

I am still waiting on the histology reports, however am concerned that some of the verbiage used indicates this could be serious. Can you give me your thoughts?

I just had a CXR in which the radiologist identified 2 possible adhesions, but also stated that they are rounded on the frontal view and therefore cannnot rule out neoplasm. They want a comparison CXR but I don't have one. Any advice? How do you differentiate the 2??

I had a needle inserted to gather three samples to check an abnormal node in my thyroid and they state it didn t rule out neoplasm. Going to another doctor monday to see if a further biopsy needs to be done. If the node is not normal should I be worried it is cancer. If it is neoplasm can it just be taken out and the cancer will be gone? Just nervous I guess.
