Cool 30 gastric polyps removed

I just had an endoscopy done yesterday and they removed 30 polyps from my stomach. Is this an unusual amount? Does this put me at a higher risk of stomach cancer? Waiting for biopsy results. Also, could this have been the source of my pain and nausea in the solar plex area? They also took biopsy of stomach wall and throat.

Thanks in advance for responses.

Re: 30 gastric polyps removed

That is a very large amount of polyps for anywhere in your body. It would be very likely it would be the source of your pain. As for the question on cancer, impossible to know until biopsy results come in. With that many I would think they would schedule regular endoscopies for you from now on. Good luck to you.

Re: 30 gastric polyps removed

shnswms, thank you for your response. I'll wait for biopsy results. Stomach feels better already. The good news is that I go every two years for endoscopy due to GERD, Gastritis and 6 polyps removed two years ago that were benign. Do you happen to know of anything I can do to reduce the number of polyps I may develop in the future? Diet changes, etc? Thanks again for the response!

Re: 30 gastric polyps removed

Hi there I am a new member and I just had a colonoscopy (they removed a polyp, had a biopsy and it was benign. At the same time, I had an endoscopy and they found more than a dozen polyps in my stomach and only removed one , did a biopsy and test for bacteria and both test came back negative. Why did they not remove them all when they were in there? It really has me worried... The Dr. just said we will monitor it and next year, if you want we will remove them. He said it would take 2 or 3 hours to remove them all... should I get a second opinion in regards to having them removed before the next endoscopy? I have never had any stomach problems now, but when I was in my 20's I had a bout of colitis, but it never came back ever... Being that they found them , should he have removed them then?

He also said it was some type of genetic condition... I don't even know of anyone in my family ever having this condition. Any advice would be most welcomed! Thanks!!! Gibbyj
