    Intestinal Metaplasia

    Recently,I had upper endoscopy in follow-up in my remission period after receiving 6 cycles of chemo and 10 session of radiotherapy.Biopsies taken and test result revealed (Focal intestinal metaplasia in the antrum and body),but no malignancy or H-pylori noted.

    My Questions is:
    * Is (IM) reversible?
    If yes,what course of treatment?
    * Is it inevitable that IM is a precancerous condition?i.e the metaplastic cells will covert to cancerous cells?
