Everything To Know About Gastric Polyp With Duodenitis.
Gastric or stomach polyps are rare and usually asymptomatic. They’re masses of cells that form on the lining inside the stomach.
Duodenal polyps are most commonly sessile (immobile) but may also be pedunculated (elongated stalk of tissue) in nature. (1)
- Occurs in adult men and women of all ages.
- Can be hereditary.
- Causes include chronic stomach inflammation, familial adenomatous polyposis, H. pylori. bacteria, and long-term use of proton pump inhibitors.
- Most gastric polyps are not cancerous.
These gastric polyps can be non-neoplastic (non-cancerous) or neoplastic (cancerous). When a gastric polyp enlarges, ulcers (duodenitis) can develop on its surface. Although most gastric polyps don't become cancerous, certain types of polyps can increase the risk of stomach cancer in the future. Interestingly, stomach polyps mostly remain undetected because they show no sign or symptom unless the patient is being examined for some other reasons.
Gastric polyp with duodenitis is self-diagnosable. Symptoms include:
● Pain or tenderness felt when you press your abdomen and blood in the stool.
● Changing your diet to a non-spicy one.
● Avoiding alcohol and quitting smoking.
● Most polyps are removed through endoscopy.
● Antibiotics to treat H. pylori infection is also prescribed.
● For malignant polyps (adenomas), surgery is the recommended course of action.
