Why Does A Doctor Biopsy During Endoscopy

Hi guys. I'm getting a bit worried. The doctor expects gastritis but took a biopsy sample during endoscopy. If it were cancer is that usually visible to the eye? Why do they do biopsies?

Thanks for all your help. I could really use some comforting words. God bless you all!

Re: Why Does A Doctor Biopsy During Endoscopy

Hi Try not to worry, I had two biopsy when I had a Endoscopy, one was to see If I had the H-Pylori and the other one it see if it was celiac Disease both come back OK.

Re: Why Does A Doctor Biopsy During Endoscopy

Thanks so much, Mandy. No, they haven't done any food testing. That's a great idea, though. Thanks for that. I think we all worry about the "c" word. I just have to keep reminding myself that God is good and it will be fine. I hope you are feeling better now. Thanks for the kind, comforting words. God bless you!

Thanks, Mandy. I will keep you in my prayers as well. =) I should know in a few days. I'm curious - can they tell what is causing the gastritis from the biopsy?
