Q. I had pain in my navel area, for which I underwent endoscopy. The report says that few erosions were found in the gastric antrum. The impression was erosive gastropathy. What are the causes, symptoms and treatment for erosive gastropathy?

A.  Erosions in the stomach can be caused by pain medications (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxin). If you are not taking these drugs you should not worry since erosions heal rapidly and generally do not cause any symptoms or problems.
