I was diagnosed with thickening of the stomach wall . I,m a former alcoholic. My doc was very evasive saying it could be a number of things, but when I research it it says Signs of Stomach Cancer. He has me scheduled for a colonoscopy and endoscopy on Oct 3. Can gastritis cause this thickening too? I know it causes inflammation. Was wondering if it could be the culprit.
Yes, it could be a number of things. The next-step is a colonoscopy so as to take the tissue for biopsy.
