Hi, just looking for some advice please.
A few days ago, I was under a double endoscopy and colonoscopy for heartburn/belching problems as well as mucus stools, and nausea that have been occurring for the past 3 months. Was tested for h pylori through stool but due to little volume of what was handed in, it's likely I'll be tested again for that, as they took a biopsy of my stomach.
The results of the colonoscopy came back clean, however, it was realized I had "gastritis and a submucosal polyp in the body of the stomach."
What worries me is the submuccosal polyp, which I can't seem to find information on other then cancer. I however, am 18 years old so the odds of it being cancer I know are low. It still doesn't make sense how a polyp like this would appear in my endoscopy.
Is it cancer? Please help.
I'll likely be getting results from the biopsy of it in a week or so. Until then anyone have any information I could use?
