Endoscopy - submucosal mass??

Hi everyone.  I am 34 years old.  I had my 1st endoscopy and colonoscopy today due to mild stomach pains and very  low ferritin levels.  The colonoscopy came back clear.  My endoscopy showed gastric inflammation and a "medium sized submucosal mass with no bleeding and no stigmata of recent bleeding." I was too loopy to remember talking to gastro and my husband said the dr said he tried to get a biopsy but if unsuccessful in lab, he will have to do an endoscopic ultrasound.  My husband said the dr treated it as if it was no big deal.  When I came to, I got a little worried about the word "mass" - results won't come back for another week.  I've tried googling it and I'm not coming up with much.  Does anyone know what this it?
