Does he have stomach cancer?

My boyfriend has SEVERE SEVERE heartburn. He gets heartburn from weird things like chex mix and the candy whoppers. He was diagnosed with an ulcer when he was just 17 years old...he is now 23 and was just diagnosed with H. Pylori...he has abdominal pain...bad indigestion...and such. Is it possible that he has stomach cancer...and that's the reason for the H. Pylori and ulcer?

Hello, in general, H. pylori is the cause digestive diseases, such as chronic gastritis, duodenal ulcer, gastric ulcer, gastric cancer is one of the main, but not to say that people who have H. pylori infection will have cancer, because everyone is not the same constitution, bacterial resistance is not the same, but the reasons for stomach cancer caused by many factors such as environment, diet, life, etc., so that H. pylori infection was not necessarily have stomach cancer, only there are mainly gastric Helicobacter pylori infection.

Stomach ulcers if left untreated, may worsen with the progression of the disease, the odds turn into stomach cancer is about 5%. If the stomach by the rhythm becomes irregular, ineffective use of drugs, progressive disease of cancer may add an important note.  For details click:www.libiman.com

The major symptom of an ulcer is a burning or gnawing feeling in the stomach area that lasts between 30 minutes and 3 hours. This pain is often interpreted as heartburn, indigestion or hunger. The pain usually occurs in the upper abdomen, but sometimes it may occur below the breastbone. Appetite and weight loss are other symptoms.
It is important to follow the treatment plan exactly as your doctor has prescribed, and if you smoke, you should stop, as smoking inhibits ulcer healing. You should also avoid alcoholic beverages.
