Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 03 May 2022

The esophagus is the muscular tube that carries food and liquids from your mouth to the stomach. You may not recognize your esophagus till you swallow something too large, too hot, or too cold. You might feel pain or have problem ingesting. One of the most common issue with the esophagus is GERD. With GERD, a muscle at the end of your esophagus does not close appropriately. In time, GERD can cause damage to the esophagus. Physicians may use numerous tests to make a medical diagnosis. Others might require prescription medications or surgery.
