thanks for your question.
yes, it is normal to send a tissue biopsy when some signs of esophagitis is found.
this is to rule out any cancerous cells ( a small likelihood).
i have had gerd for sometime
but no difficulty swallowing or blood s
also i have recently taken nexium and feel better
that is good.
But, sending out biopsy is a standard procedure during endoscopy.
