Patient Data

Age: 50 years
Gender: Male

There are multiple small sessile polyps in the gastric antrum and prepyloric stomach.

The pyloric sphincter is in the center of the image

Case Discussion

A few of these gastric polyps were biopsied and found to be hyperplastic polyps.

These kinds of polyps are not neoplasms and have no malignant potential. They are typically small (<1 cm), multiple, and sessile, as in this case.
