I had an endoscopy done and the doc noted 1 polyp and biopsy my esophagus because of my reflux. Yesterday, I was all doped up and he tried to explain this to me I am not sure if he said it was of non cancer type or what? Anyway, I am concerned. anyone else have stomach polyps at 38 yo?
I have had stomach polyps for over 15 years. They have never been Cancerous. I have had them removed. However, they keep coming back faster and bigger. A year ago it was the size of a golf ball. Last November I had part of my stomach removed to try to stop the growth of the polyps. I just had my stomach scoped and the polyps are back except now instead of just one I have multiple ones and they are all different in shape and size. I am waiting for the results of the biopsy. My question is, what are my options? Always with my polyps, I have discomfort and bleeding so I don't think I can just leave them and removing them doesn't seem to do any good because they just come back.
