Does anyone have any information about H. Pylori being connected to stomach cancer? If you have stomach cancer, were you ever tested positive for H Pylori?? Any info would be greatly appreciated. :)

Yes , there is link, I had and was treated for H-P before my cancer was found. Most doctors will order a endoscopy after treatment to make sure it's all gone and to check for lessions. Some doctors will acually scope before treatment.

Yes, they are very connected. I had HP which turned into an ulcer. It led to cancer. Best way to diagnose is by an endoscopy. Best of luck to you

My husband was diagnosed with h.p. in December 2007. After taking the 3 antibiotics and still not feeling better, more tests were done - he was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, stage IV on Decmeber 21st, 2007. :(

He was given very little hope at all, but we refused to believe what the doctors were telling us. (We were in total denial). Hubby is a veteran and we live in CA; we were finally referred to Palo Alto VA which works closely with Stanford University. Hubby started chemo January 26th, 2007. By his second chemo in February, the mass in his liver had been reduced by 50%! The mass in the esophagus had been reduced by 25%. (This was determined with a CT scan). His treatment is Carboplatin (infusion) and Xeloda (chemo pills).
He is still being treated, and on June 28th he will have another CT scan to see how effective the treatments have been. The oncologist seems to think that he is going into remission :) However, she has told us there is no cure for this cancer once it has spread to the liver, but for now we are very hopeful. Hubby has gained back all of his weight (30 pounds), feels great, has lots of energy and is perfectly healthy (except for the cancer). So please keep fighting - there is always hope.
Gentle hugs,
