Diagnosed with cirrhosis, esophageal varices, high BP, benign. Done biopsy. Help?

My husband is 68 and was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and esophageal varcies 2 years ago. No bleeding of the varcies at this point. A recent endoscopic showed a large paulip in the esophagus , a biopsy done came back benign. My husband takes meds for high blood pressure, and is pre-diabetic, controlled by diet and exercise. The Gastro Doc prescribed a liquid med to take prior to eating to coat the stomach. We are waiting to have a consultation with the Doc to discuss the results of the colonoscopy and endoscopy. What questions are the most important to ask. thank you concerned wife

Hi there, Most important to ask would be the chances of malignancy and whether they need to do more tests to confirm or refute malignancy. Also whats the current status of varices and find out about life style and dietary modification for him. I hope he is not taking alcohol or smoking....Take care
