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.

Upper EGD came back "normal studay" but below said stomach had chronic inflammation and duedenum had squamous mucosa but no abnormailty.What does mean?

Irritation...: It means you have had some inflammation which is usually caused by excessive acid production. It seems they didn't find any evidence of malignancy( cancer) or ulcers but you have been suffering of ongoing irritation which in the future could lead to other more problematic symptoms. Make sure you stay away from fatty foods, spicy foods, too much sauce, caffeine which can worsen the irritation. ...Read more

Erosive esophagitis: The presence of erosions in the esophagus is a sign that your GERD is fairly severe. Certainly you should take a PPI at least until the erosions are healed and your symptoms are under good control. After that, some patients can go off of them, particularly if they follow anti-reflux measures assiduously. Many patients do end up requiring long-term medication, however. Good luck. ...Read more

I got a egd today and waiting on the biopsy results. What does congestion in the stomach body and antrum compatible with gastritis?  & normal mucosa?

Patchy inflammation: Congestion is synonymous with hyperemia, which literally means redness. Based on the your description of the endoscopic appearance of your stomach lining it sounds like you have a patchy mild inflammation there. Biopsies will tell more, and may help point to cause of said inflammation (e.g. H.Pylori, nsaid, etc.). ...Read more
