In brief: Food pipe dysfunctio
The esophagus connects the back of the throat to the stomach.
Any dysfunction disturbs the flow of food down this pipe. This includes muscle disorders (e.g. Scleroderma), trauma (e.g. Alkali burns), erosion (e.g. Gastric acid reflux), and growths (e.g. Cancer). If you have a history of trauma or have trouble swallowing, see your gastrointestinal doctor to have it evaluated.

Disorders can affect the structure as well as the function of your esophagus. There are specific tests for each.
