I've been experiencing alot of reflux type symptoms and have recently undergone endoscopy. The physician found no evidence of Barrett's but did find a nodule at the gastroesphageal junction. Biopsy came back benign. I'm scheduled for another in a couple of months to recheck status. I'm on Nexium 40 mg. which is helping with the reflux tremendously. Question is: Is it safe to continue Nexium on a long term basis? I only found info stating for short term use. Also My family does have history of colon cancers which I get screened for every 3 years, is this nodule a precursor to a cancer although it is benign now? Should it be removed surgically just in case, even if it stays benign for now? Thank You.
