Barretts Esophagus

Recurrent or continuous exposure to stomach acid might lead to the condition known as Barrett’s esophagus; people with long-term gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) have a higher chance of being diagnosed with this health condition. In this particular condition the flat pink lining of the swallowing tube that connects the mouth to the stomach (esophagus) becomes damaged by acid reflux, which eventually causes the lining to be thickened and red. While frequent heartburn and chest pain are often reported as common symptoms, but many people with Barrett’s esophagus might be asymptomatic as well. Treatments in case of mild condition are basically medical monitoring and medication, in severe cases patients needs to undergo surgery. In rare case, it also develops into oesophageal cancer.
