Stomach Polyps

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?

Call the Dr back and ask for a better explanation, or better yet ask for a copy of the pathogy reports. Keep asking questions. My sister in laws both have stomach polyps.

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.

My doctor discovered that I had stomach polyps 7 1/2 years ago.  I'm now 30 years old.
