When I read that people with pernicious anemia have a higher risk of developing cancer it really scared and shook me up, coming from a family that has lost many people due to cancer.
* link between damage done to the stomach’s lining by PA and gastric cancer. Regular visits and biopsies are able to check for the beginnings of cancer.*
My question is, if you are being treated for b12 and getting regular injections or tablets does this damage to the stomach lining still occur and why isn't this looked into more? or is this damage done when your b12 levels are extremely low or low?
The thought of being high risk for cancer scares me as it probably does with a lot of you guys but I am trying to fin d a silver lining in this ... are we suppose to just sit back and let it eat away our stomach living or does regular injections like I've stated take out this increased risk of cancer?
