I had a recent gastroscopy during which the MD was unable to biopsy stomach nodules as I was gagging, etc. He ordered an H-pylori serum which was negative. As a breast cancer survivor, do I need to have more follow up or care re: these nodules? Thank you.
Yes, you should find out what these nodules are. This may require you to undergo a repeat endoscopy.
