A 39-year-old male asked:
Are gastric fundic polyps that are induced by ppi's considered/classified as "sporadic"?

Not the same: Both the sporadic and PPI-related types of fundic gland polyps have an extremely low malignant potential. The PPI-related lesions may regress once use of the PPI is discontinued. Larger polyps (>1 cm) should be removed endoscopically, and if the patient is taking a PPI, discontinuation of the PPI should be considered. A polyp d/t familial polyposis carries a defined 30% to 50% risk of death
