This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor
how old are you?
many things can cause thickening
the most common cause is inflammation of the stomach (gastritis) and colon (colitis) can cause thickening of the stomach and colon walls.
infection can cause thickening as well.
having chronic constipation can be from irritable bowel syndrome and this can cause thickening of the colon walls.
that is good you are going to have an endoscopy and colonoscopy.
this will prove for sure if you have a cancer going on in those areas.
but the chances for cancer are small
