In brief: Barrett's esophagus

Treating people with reflux may help prevent Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal cancer.
Often, reflux is treated using drugs called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), such as esomeprazole (Nexium®). Avoiding tobacco and alcohol, balanced diet and healthy body weight do help also.
