What is an Esophageal Ulcer?
An esophageal ulcer is a type of open sore that develops on the inner lining of the esophagus, the muscular tube connecting the throat to the stomach. These ulcers can result from the erosion of the protective mucosal layer lining the esophagus, allowing stomach acid and digestive juices to damage the underlying tissues
Esophageal ulcers can develop when the esophagus is repeatedly exposed to stomach acid, often due to conditions like hiatal hernias or GERD (severe heartburn). Medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as infections such as candida and herpes, can also contribute. Ingesting corrosive substances, mainly affecting children, and certain surgeries or foreign bodies can lead to ulcers. It’s crucial to address the underlying causes for effective treatment.
