In brief: Gastric polyps.

most gastric polyps are benign and never cause problems.
It is good of your doctor to have biopsied them, but if he assured you that they are of no concern, you can probably rest comfortably. Regardless, you should go over the results of the biopsy is with him once they are back. Good luck.
