Esophageal Disorder

There are many different esophageal disorders. The esophagus is the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. Disorders of the esophagus fall into one of four categories: structural abnormalities, motility disorders, inflammatory disorders, and malignancies. The most common problem associated with the esophagus ia a motilty disorder called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This occurs when the bottom of the esophagus does not close properly and allows the contents of the stomach to leak back into the esophagus causing irritation. There are many treatments available such as over the counter medication as well as prescription medication and surgery.
