Likely normal

Most patients will have some mild erythema in the stomach outlet. Redness of the mucosa represents gastritis, or inflammation of the lining of the stomach that can be reactive to smoke, alcohol, or medications and food. See your doctor for followup and discussion.

Endoscopy revealed diffuse moderate inflammation characterized by erosions & erythema in gastric body & antrum. biopsies taken. Is Cancer likely?

Wait for biopsy,,,,,

Stomach_cancer
At this point it's inconclusive to say and a clearer idea of this can be obtained once the biopsy results come back. Most stomach cancers are characterized by raised and thickened ulcer margins which you apparently don't have. Other cancers there are associated with blood disorders like lymphomas and have gastric thickening. Based on this cancer isn't likely but again, the bx gives more info..

granularity and erythema in the antrum after endoscopy...what does it mean?

Antritis

Ibuprofen
The stomach makes acid. Acid digests some foods especially proteins. It also produces a protective layer of mucous. If that mucous layer is decreased it exposes the lining of the stomach to those acids. Things that decrease that mucous layer are stress, aspirin, Motrin, Advil and other like drugs. With exposure to those acids the lining of the stomach begins erode causing injury to the lining

Dr. Joseph P. Rank answered:

My doctor took biopsies when he found erythema in the gastric antrum, what could these show?

Redness in stomach

Gastric
can mean inflammation or gastritis. The most common cause of inflammation is H. pylori infection. Redness also occurs in reactive mucosa usually from taking aspirin or NSAIDs. These two account for the vast majority of gastric erosions/inflammation.
