I recently underwent and EGD and it was found I have gastric polyps. This has raised a little concern due to my lifetime battle with nasal polyposis and multiple polyps in ascending colon. Could possibly be unrelated but maybe due to an inflammatory response to something ingested? I do take PPI's daily and have read that can increase chances of gastric polyps. I will be undergoing the gastric sleeve procedure and am hoping this wont be a problem in the future.
I am only 43 years old and don't want to have to worry about this, just want to find out how to figure out what is the cause of all these polyps.
