Customer Question

2 years ago I had an endoscopy done and my doctor found a lot of swelling in my stomach and later said I have intestinal metaplasia. He said it's not common in young people (I'm 21) but not to worry and to have another endo done in 5 years. Should I have one sooner?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Ok looks like you have gastric inlet patch.

That is considered a benign condition.

Almost never turns cancerous.

You do not need an endoscopy sooner.
Best wishes,
