Erythematous Mucosa Stomach
Gastric biopsy result: antral mucosa revealing mild to moderate chronic inflamation with associated extensive intestinal metaplesia. What that mean?
Precancer: The antrum is that portion of the lower stomach above the pylorus. Having chronic inflammation with extensive intestinal metaplasia is the precursor for developing gastric cancer.

Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness.
