  • Achalasia

  • Barrett’s esophagus is a change in the lining of the muscular tube that transports your food from the mouth to the stomach. In people who have Barrett’s, the tissue lining the esophagus becomes more like the tissue lining the small intestine.

  • When stomach acid leaks into the esophagus, it can damage it and cause gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
  • Hiatal Hernia

    A hiatal hernia, also known as diaphragmatic hernia, is a condition in which the upper part of the stomach bulges through an opening in the diaphragm. It is possible to have a hiatal hernia with no symptoms. But some people have heartburn related to gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. Medicine can help relieve symptoms of hiatal hernias. Losing weight, not smoking and avoiding heavy meals can also help. If medicine and lifestyle changes do not work, surgical treatment is an option.
  • Hyperhidrosis

    Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which a person sweats excessively. A person with hyperhidrosis may sweat even if it is cool outside. Treatments for hyperhidrosis vary depending on where a person sweats and whether the person has hyperhidrosis related to another medical condition (known as secondary hyperhidrosis), such as cancer, menopause or anxiety.
  • Most lung cancer begins in the cells that line the bronchi, the two large tubes that carry air from the trachea down into the lungs.
  • Mesothelioma is a tumor of the tissue that lines your lungs, stomach, heart or other organs. These tumors can be malignant (cancer) or benign (not cancerous).
