Biopsy shows Barrett’s Esophagus. This is a change in the normal lining of the esophagus that has a precancerous potential. NO cancer was identified. Patients with this change should undergo periodic surveillance to assess for progression to more advanced stages.
The polyp was adenoma- precancerous but no cancer in it. The doctor said this.

I do have Barrett's, I have stage four Cancer I Guess, they said it was a 4 but reduced to 3 because it hadn't spread, well it did spread, no surgery! It went into my L3 Vertebrae! I NEVER have any indigestion, 28 radiations & 6 Chemo, the tumor is gone, however 80% chance of returning! I'm on KeyTruda every 3 weeks & another flavor every 2 weeks for the bones! My biggest issue is I have an Arthritic hip & this stuff attacked it to the point I can't walk without cane or crutches! They put me thru Prednisone pills but they did nothing ! iBUPROPINE

rexsan, I was diagosed with Barrett's Esophagus in 2018 after I had internal bleeding from my small intestine. I was told to go on protonix PPI and eat low acid diet from now on. I did the diet very strictly and on my last EGD in 2020, my Barrett's esophagus was no where to be seen. I hope it doesn't come back and that's why I keep to my strict diet. Good luck with your diet and keep taking the PPI.
