Digestive Disorders

Stomach Nodules

06/07/2010

Question:

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.

Answer:

Yes, you should find out what these nodules are. This may require you to undergo a repeat endoscopy.
