Catching Barrett’s Esophagus Early
Can Help Prevent Cancer
Almost everyone experiences acid reflux every now and then. When acid reflux is frequent or chronic, it can contribute to more serious digestive disorders
such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Barrett’s esophagus.
“Barrett's esophagus is a precancerous condition that is often associated with GERD,” says Anish Sheth, M.D., board certified in gastroenterology, Chief of Gastroenterology at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center (PMC) and Co-Medical Director of the PMC Center for Digestive Health.
In patients with Barrett’s esophagus, the cells in the esophagus change and are replaced by a different type of tissue similar to the lining of the intestine. If left undiagnosed and untreated, these changes may lead to esophageal cancer.
The biggest risk factor for Barrett’s esophagus is GERD, a condition in which the contents of the stomach flow backward into the esophagus.
Barrett's esophagus is more likely to affect men, Caucasians, and
individuals over age 50. Obesity, smoking and family history are also risk factors.
At the Center for Digestive Health, patients have access to high-quality screening, testing and treatment for common and complex gastrointestinal conditions, including GERD and Barrett’s esophagus.
Common treatments range from medications to radiofrequency ablation, a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure which destroys diseased cells before they become cancerous.
Early detection and treatment can prevent the disease from progressing and allow you to live a fuller and healthier life.
