I recently had an endoscopy done and was told I had an irregular Z-line and a biopsy was taken. I have not been given the results yet. Is this something to be concerned about, does this condition mean pre-barretts esophagus? and is it more likely that malignancy can occur? Any info is greatly appreciated. Also, I am on acid reducing meds increased to 40 mg 2x daily. Seems like it should be helping more than it is, has been 1 month since increased total time of gerd 1 1/2 yrs.
thanks in advance for your response
