hyperlastic polop

53 year old male on lopressor, prisolec, topomax (topamax), buspar, diovan hct, Darvocet, essgic plus.
Prior to the endscope below the last one was appxy a year eariler.

I have been taking prioslec for well over 15 years for acid reflux. About 18 months ago I had a heart attack and received several stents. After surgery I was foud to be bleeding internally so an endoscope was performed. A Gastric mass was found (to large to remove durning procedure). Approxametly 6 months later another endoscope was performed by different gastro. He reported a 2cm Hyperemic, sessile lession along the greater curvature . Further examination via ultrasound found the lession to be 22x15mm . Pathlogy reports the biopsy of a gastric mass with edema, inflammation and tekangiectasia. No Helicobacter pylori organisms were seen.

What are the possibilities that one or more, either alone or in combination could have caused this problen. Aslo Is there any written studies on Drugs lie the Prisolec causing this?

I wish I could answer your questions.  :-(  You would have better luck at a factual response by posting on the "pay" side of the forum and getting one of the doc's opinions.
