Stomach cancer risks?
I am a 23 year old male. My grandfather died of stomach cancer in his 40's (which is early for this disease). My father had ulcers from mid 20's till he died at 40 (unrelated problem). I have been having severe stomach problems since about 13. This burning would last for a week or two and then go away. It happened maybe 8 times and the last time was the summer of 2003. I have been disgnosed with H.Pylori and am waiting to see if its out of my system.
My family eats alot of hot dogs, sausages, deli meats and BBQ's alot. Last summer I was proud to say I had a steak at least once a week (about 20-25 large steaks all summer). Fat left on and made nice and crispy.
I also had a CT scan and a bunch of x-rays which also contributes to stomach cancer.
What are the chances that I WONT get stomach cancer. Looking at the risks, I will probably run into stomach cancer. Is it too late?
I plan on seeing a doctor, but would like opinions from people that have this disease or know others that have it. I am freaking out right now
