Had an endoscopy today to see why I have extreme fatigue of 4 months / anemia. They said they found a couple red spots to be biopsied - what can it be?
Many possibilities.: Since you just had your procedure today, your memory will be foggy from the sedation you were given. Most likely the endoscopist gave you a report. So you may wish to look at that, or through the papers you were given when you were released to go home. In someone your age, red spots are usually inflammation. The biopsy results will tell you for certain in a few days. Meanwhile take it easy &best2U ...Read more

Irritation: Since you have no pain they are not likely cause by the virus that causes cold sores. If adjacent to a tooth it could be your tooth brush is not drying out completely between uses.
