Dr said I had slight gastric erosion after endoscopy. Everything else was normal.. Biopsied the area and it came back as normal. How can that be?

No test is perfect

Endoscopy
Sometimes mucosal pits or dents can look like erosions, and on stomach biopsy prove normal. Sometimes, tiny gastric lesions are targeted for biopsy, but surrounding unaffected tissue is obtained instead. Your doctor may be suspicious of erosive disease & will be gratified if you respond to his empiric treatment of it. Certainly express your concerns to the treating physician if still symptomatic.

Endoscopy report said slight linear gastric erosion on distal body of stomach. I don't take NSAIDs and h.pylori negative. What caused this? I'm 27.

Many causes

Endoscopy
Even though NSAIDs and H pylori are common causes of gastric erosions, there are many other causes: stress, alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, tumors (gastrinomas), certain foods, IBD, and other medications. Talk with the doctor who performed your endoscopy.

Dr. Paula Hillard answered:

Please can I have info on cervical erosion. I never got any kind if treatment when I was told I have it. Confused? is there a way to heal it on my own

Outdated term

Std
In the US, this term isn't used, as it doesn't have a specific definition or cause.In other parts of the world, it's been used to describe a red appearance of the cervix, which may be caused by infection, stds, or may be normal.See a gyno now, and ask if there's any abnormal appearance, and get tested for stds if needed. Then use condoms in the future if you may be at risk for stds.
