Barrett's Esophagus

Professor Barrett first described changes in the lining of the esophagus that occur after prolonged irritation, such as gastroesophageal reflux, or chronic heartburn. It can lead to esophageal cancer in a small, but real percentage of patients. Fortunately, the esophagus can be examined with an endoscopy, and early changes can be found so that cancer can be prevented.
