Regarding cancer rates. Looking at leukaemia in califnornia vs. Nv. In la county it is 11/100,000. Clark county it is 19/100,000. Is this a big deal?
Most likely not: Epidemiology (study of disease in a population) is tricky. Both rates quoted are very small so a doubling is very likely not a concern. Also, when comparing two areas and a very specific disease, you really should adjust for age, gender and ethnicity. Differences in a city's population can dramatically affect the incidence of certain diseases--many diseases occur only in men or women, kids, etc. ...Read more

Lots of factors but: ...there is no guarantee that any anti-reflux treatment or procedure will prevent progression to Barrett's or its dysplastic transformation. Happily, only a minority of GERD sufferers ever develop Barrett's, and only a very few of those progress to cancer. Certainly, don't smoke, and do heed your doctor's advice. ...Read more
Not very common: The risk of cancer is not very high. Most patients with this cancer in the us nowadays have gerd with barretts changes. However the chances of a patient with barretts getting cancer is about 0.5% per year- it is best to not ignore long term gerd and seek regular medical treatments and diet changes. ...Read more
Years: While gerd doesn't necessarily cause cancer per se, it can cause the cells in the esophagus to change to intestine type cells, which in the minority of cases can turn in to cancer over the course of years. If your gerd is bothersome, and present for more than a few years, consider seeing a gastroenterologist for a consultation. ...Read more
Chronic Inflammation: GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease leads to alkaline reflux that changes the barrier lining of the esophagus (the tube just before your stomach). Inflammation leads to changes called "Barrett's esophagus" - with time, this is thought to predispose risk of esophageal cancer by creating altered, abnormal, premalignant cells. ...Read more
Depends on treatment: Barrett's esophagus doesn't have to turn into cancer at all, technically. It's a precancerous condition, and as long as it's monitored and treated properly it could never actually become cancer and would therefore have no effect on your lifespan. BUT...it requires proper monitoring by EGD. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Year of acid injury to the esophagus because of gerd and cause changes to the cells that are pre-cancerous (barrett's esophagus) and eventually esophageal cancer. But if those changes are not present when gerd is diagnosed, and medicine is taken to stop gerd, those risky things should never occur. ...Read more
How long can GERD take to develop into barrett's esophagus? If it does and what are the chances also? Thanks in advance.
We don't know.: We don't know. We believe that it takes a long time since it is a disease of middle age men>women about 3:1. The gerd has to have been active over time. Gerd is a major risk factor for barrett's, but the incidence on adenocarinoma from barrett's is declining, perhaps related to improved drug therapy for gerd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
GERD: Dietary changes can improve the symptoms of GERD. It is important to avoid any particular foods that give you problems, but common culprits are tomatoes, onions, citrus fruits, chocolate, caffeine, and alcohol. Tilting your bed on blocks often helps. You should avoid tobacco. Despite these measures, though, many people still require chronic medication to control GERD. Good luck. ...Read more
Years: These often start in childhood but we don't see the tumors until over 40, usually well beyond. Lpr = laryngeal-pharyngeal reflux, gerd = gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Yes, too much : Cancer in young people is very rare unless there is a strong family history of it. Take your medicines as prescribe by your dr (?Omeprazole) and add some antacids if you have breakthrough heartburn. Cut back on intake of coffee, soda, spicy foods, energy drinks etc. Enjoy life friend. You need to unwind and slow down a bit. Try slow deep breathing and smell the roses.

Pentazol: is known as. a PPI. These are generally good medicines for Gerd. It may be that he needs to switch to a different PPI, or perhaps he needs a higher dose of the one he is on. I would have him contact his gastroenterologist for guidance as to what to do next. Good luck. ...Read more
