Question
Hi, my father at 51 was diagnosed with cancer in his duodenum from an endoscope he died 3 years later. I'm now 50 and was wondering if I should have that procedure. I've had them in the past because of upper right quadrant problems and was told I have a hiatal hernia and gastritis, this was years ago and still have the same symptoms. My father was throwing up by the time the cancer was found and was in late stages. I also had a Colonoscopy yesterday and they said they removed 4 polyps and I have diverticulitis that's all I know right now.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HealthcareMagic..
I thank you for posting your query here and I am definitely going to help you out..

I read your question completely and have understood it well enough.

Please note..

1. I like the way you are thinking. But, believe me all cancers are not hereditary.

2. Most of the cancers are multi factorial, meaning, various causes contribute. Cannot pin point to one cause.

3. Going back to your question, did you have an upper GI endoscopy earlier when the diagnosis of Gastritis and Hiatal Hernia was done. If yes, he doctor would have found any suspicious lesion then and definitely he would have taken tissue for biopsy.

Hence do not worry.

4. Now, let's wait for Biopsy report of the Polyps that were removed yesterday.
After that we can plan ahead.

5. But, currently I do not recommend upper gi endoscopy or biopsy.

Hope this helps you..
In case you need further assistance, please contact me back.
Or, you can close the question and rate.
Take care..

My girlfriend is having problem with what we belive is her duodenum but has been unsuccessfull in getting any medical direction on how to best address or help her issue. She has progressively become very underweight over the past 10 years. Despite being very hungry she has trouble eating and frequently finds herself with a "full" sick feeling. She has has had an increasing problem over the years with reflux and vomitting --- she sometimes gets lucky and can have a stretch of a day or two without getting sick (but even then she is not able to eat anyore than usual). Her vomitting is frequently fully digested food/liquid. She has had repeated tests - endoscopy, colonoscopy, emptying test etc and the only explanation that has been potentially provided is that radiation treatments she had 40 years ago as a teen-ager may have damaged her duodenum. A while back she had been led to believe that her gall bladder was pressing on duodenum so she took the steps to have it removed, but unfortunately that didn't seem to correct the issue.

So at this point she is concerned as her weight keeps dropping and has not been given much in terms of thoughts of what she can do to help her situation. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks

Hello Doctor, In October last year i had to have Gastric Bypass surgery due to a large duodenal ulcer which the surgeon was unable to remove because it had attcached itself to the liver. The surgeon cut off blood supply to the ulcer so it could die off. My last GGT reading done yesterday is 207 Alka Phos is 162. I have a lump at the site of the liver whichmostly just causes discomfort and only hurts when I strain my seld like bending down and twisting my torso I get a stitch like pain, when running I feel the discomfort more severly, should I be worried?
