1 doctor agrees

In brief: Quite routine

Lot of time when an egd is done, there is high index of suspicion so there are more often stomach, esophageal, duodenal bx to confirn our suspicion.

In brief: Very routine.

One of the main benefits of an EGD is the ability to sample the inner lining of the esophagus, stomach and intestines for diagnostic purposes.
So a biopsy during an EGD is pretty much the norm.
