I have motions 4-5 times a day. Is it due to over consumption of milk? Doctor found ulcer on my large intestine. Is it harmful or a cause of cancer?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Kolkata
Are the motions watery or mucus like? the former may be due to intolerance of milk. Where was the ulcer located? was biopsy taken from it? solitary rectal ulcer is a separate entity. Another common disease that can cause ulcer in large intestine is ulcerative colitis. That requires long term therapy.

Expired milk can give infection but allergy to all milk product needs assessment properly. Avoid outside spicy and fried food. Walk about 3-5 kms daily. There should be gap of 2hrs after dinner and sleep. Small and frequent meals is of help chew your food properly at time of lunch and dinner. Keep your blood sugar controlled. Raise your bed about 4" from headend side. Get your gastroendoscopy done. Tab nexpro-l 1 tab empty stomach.
