I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount(Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

I have erythema in lower 3rd of esophagus, z-line 40cm from incisors, large food amount(Residue)in stomach, Erythematous mucosa in the antrum biopsied?

Endoscopy report: Erythema is of little significance without a biopsy of the area to correlate, large food residue could mean you have gastroparesis, or slow stomach emptying that might benefit from medication (or small frequent meals), and I'm glad that the antrum was biopsied. That's a place where you are likely to find H pylori if they are present. ...Read more

My endoscopy results reveals lower third has mild esophagitis with LAX LES and Diffuse erythema in body and antrum.What does that mean?

The Word On GERD: It means you're all inflamed down there and some of it is leaking back up and affecting your esophagus. It also hopefully means other tests are pending(blood and stool tests for any stomach infection, blood test for anemia,etc) and information regarding what to do about your problem("Gastroesophageal Disease," or GERD). Until then,diet modifcation and use of antacids is inorder and,not lying flat ...Read more

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