Acid Reflux Disease

Acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) either opens too often or does not close all the way, allowing stomach acid to enter into the esophagus, irritating the lining.

Colon Cancer

Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is the result of uncontrolled cell growth in the colon or rectum. Colon cancer can be indicated by a variety of symptoms, although any single symptom or combination of symptoms does not necessarily indicate the presence of colon cancer.

Hemorrhoids

Hemorrhoids are swollen veins inside the anal canal or near the opening of the anus. Hemorrhoids can be either internal or external, and it is entirely possible to have both types at the same time. However, symptoms and treatments vary depending on type.

Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C (HCV) is a viral disease that leads to the swelling or inflammation of the liver. The disease is spread primarily through contact with the blood of an infected person. A minority of people have symptoms during the early phase of the infection, which usually develops 5-12 weeks after exposure to HCV.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) refers to a group of inflammatory conditions in all or part of your digestive tract and is one of the five most prevalent gastrointestinal diseases in the United States.

Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer, also known as gastric cancer, is a malignant tumor in the lining of the stomach. Stomach cancers are classified according to the type of tissue from which they originate. The most common type of stomach cancer is Adenocarcinoma, which starts in the glandular tissue of the stomach and accounts for 90% to 95% of all stomach cancers.

Peptic (Stomach) Ulcers

Peptic ulcers are open sores that develop on the inside lining of the esophagus, stomach or upper portion of the small intestine. When found in the stomach, they are known as gastric ulcers. When sores are located inside the esophagus, they are known as esophageal ulcers. In the upper portion of the small intestine, they are duodenal ulcers.
