They are usually found to be normal tissue, but you may get more information once the pathologist has reviewed the biopsy sample. LES laxity means your lower esophageal sphincter is "saggy" and is associated with reflux disease.

I have duodenitis which hasnt been an issue lately, however, for the past 3 months I have pressure pain right below the sternum. What can cause?
