Why did they say you look like you have cancer?
because they say i lost weight and looked tired .now because of my egerd and indigestion iam scared if i nedd barium test. at first i was scared of headthis medicine helped so much now a different worry.
Didn't your doctor prescribe Prilosec for your stomach problem?
no she didnt she told me to buy zantac . but now i am googling esophagaal cancer . and it says u at risk if u have gerd . what do i do .am i overiiacting. and also i do know people lose weight on this medicine even if u eat . an u explain why u still lose if u eat while taking this medicine
You lose weight because it suppresses the appetite and you eat less. And losing 10 pounds is good and not a sign of cancer.
You really should try the Zantac and if that takes care of the indigestion problem things are fine
but i have been having gerd for a long time could it have done the damage to cause esophegagal .?so do u think i should ldo the barium.orjust take medicine .i have nopain, my stool is ok, appetite is good.energy is giod. indigesgion is bad and weight loss .
That's possible but a better test would be upper endoscopy. The weight loss doesn't worry me at all.
o now iam worried . i am afarid of all the scopes inside of me . so u saying years of gerd could cause cancer . or can cause other damage . my blood work was done in july was allgood
Not cancer but there could be damage to your esophagus.
I can't help it if you worry about a scope--but talk to your doctor about it
as a dr what u think .if i have reflux what kind of damage i might have . and as semengly young person what is my chance of it not being cancer
I definitely don't think you have cancer and there may be no damage at all to your esophagus but the only way to tell that would be with the scope
how urgent u think i would need it. wpuld u reccomend the meds first then if no help appt to the dr
The zantac first and if that takes care of the problem no need for the scope

Yes you can crush it and the chances of stomach or colon cancer at your age are very, very small

You don't have an aneurysm but you may have a sinus infection--give it a few days and if the symptoms don't go away have your doctor check to see if you need antibiotics
