It means normal in most every regard, with minor, if any, deviations; that is the effect of the qualification "essentially."
It is similar to saying "virtually" to same effect (meaning more of less, but close to).
I take it to mean that whatever variations exists that deviate from the norm are so minor as not to mean anything.
If you wanted to buy an 3/8" SAE socket set from me that had a few minor scratches on the 7/16" socket, I very well might describe this as essentially normal. The looks are not perfect, but in its function, it is certainly normal.
I just saw the word biopsy in your question. It would mean that there is not evidence of cancer, infection, ulcerative colitis, or anything else ominous.
I cannot believe that your doc would not take 30 seconds to explain this to you. You should think seriously about getting another one.
That would be doctor. Not biopsy.
thankyou for your time in answering such a dappy question n as 4 getting a new doc. he is the best 1 iv had so far!!!
Essentially is the adverb form of the word, essential. Essential can be defined as pertaining to or constituting the essence of a thing.
