I was recently diagnosed with diverticulitis in my stomach and colon. I'd already been diagnosed with Colitis.

The CT showed a thinking of the stomach wall - could that the cause by the diverticulitis? Or cancer?

Hello and Welcome SayaG,

I am sorry to hear of your diagnosis and hope you are feeling better.

In a quick search, I could not find a link that directly answers your question. Please check with your health care professional to address your concerns of cancer and thickening stomach wall.
