Re: needing some infor on stomach lymphoma
I'm so sorry to hear the ordeal you're going thru just to get a diagnosis.
there are over 30 different sub types of lymphoma's and they're not always easy to detect.
One of the lymphoma's of the stomach I've heard of is called "Malt" lymphoma which is an abbreviation of the name.
Mucosa something. It effects the muscosa lining.
were you ever diagnosed with a H.Pylori? this bacteria is a bug that sits deep withing the mucosa lining of the pylori and the body tries to kill it or attack it by producing acid and the acid therefore destroys the healthy tissue without being able to reach the deep buried bacteria.
some say having H.pylori and not treating it can lead to Malt lymphoma.
then again, you can a non hodgkins lymphoma in there too.
try googling the name Malt lypmphoma or non hodgkins lymphoma to find out the different types there are. It's amazing.
I wish you the best and like I said, I understand how it feels to be juggles about from dr to dr because sometimes the diagnosis doesn't jump out at the doctors so they wind up referring you.
it's horrible and it's frustrating. especially when you know you're own body and no one seems to listen. I say go by your instinct. you know your body best, and your blood levels are NOT normal wich should've been investigated first.
I wish you good health and that it doesn't wind up being a lymhphoma.
