you know what you are suffering from, may be the scopyv was done for same. so teh doctor wants to confirm same by biopsy from the affected area on stomach. Had you told me your age and sufferings, i would have been able to be more precise in making a diagnosis.
the findings mean an evidence of hyperacidity associated with reflux, has no meaning unless you detail your sufferings.
