The esophagus is a hollow organ that serves to transport food and liquid from the mouth to the stomach. Esophageal disorders can severely affect quality of life and manifest as heartburn, regurgitation of stomach contents back into the mouth, difficulty swallowing with a sense of food sticking in the chest, or pain on swallowing. These disorders also can cause symptoms beyond the esophagus, including the throat (coughing, hoarse voice, and throat clearing), the nose (sinus congestion/infection), the lungs (asthma, bronchitis, and pneumonia), and the mouth (dental erosions and cavities) and even imitate the symptoms of a heart attack.
