Spicy food lovers are no stranger to heartburn and acid reflux, but if symptoms are frequent, it could be a sign of a more serious issue. Lifestyle changes
can help to reduce the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), but long-term acid exposure can damage esophageal cells and potentially
lead to cancer. Early diagnosis and treatment of GERD can help to prevent any permanent damage and reduce your risk of developing cancer.
If you’re experiencing heartburn or acid reflux as a result of GERD, call today to schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.
