Stomach Nodules



Are stomach nodules common? I recently had endoscopy and was told that they had to do biopsies of several nodules that were found in my stomach. Is there an increased correlation between taking PPI`s for long periods and stomach nodules? Correlation with diet?


Stomach nodulesĀ are common in those taking PPIs. Biopsies are usually taken to ensure they are benign but if in a certain pattern, no biopsies are done. Not related to diet.
