What Is Barrett’s Esophagus?
Barrett’s esophagus is a disorder of the esophageal lining that can lead to esophageal cancer. Continuous exposure to stomach acid can cause the cells in the lower esophagus to become damaged, changing the architecture of the cells and increasing an individual’s risk of developing esophageal cancer. Studies have shown that people with Barrett’s disease are 50-80 times more likely to develop esophageal cancer than the general population.
