Fundic polyps

I have been on 20mg Losec for many years and recently had a stomach scope that showed I had more than 50 (they stop counting after 50) Fundic stomach polyps). Research tells me these polyps are the result of extended use of Losec. A biopsy was done of one and showed it was not cancerous and the doctor told me it is not a great cause for concern but that I should have regular scopes. Nevertheless I do worry. Is there an alternative to Losec that will not cause this problem? I would like to reduce the Losec dose but my GP tells me this is not wise. Any thoughts? Many thanks.
