Reflux; In this disease, which is known as gastroesophageal reflux, in general terms “reflux” among the people, stomach contents, stomach acid or bile, come back to the esophagus. Due to its short duration, reflux is usually not noticed when it first starts. However, prolonged and repeated reflux complaints during sleep indicate “pathological reflux” and may cause ulcers. Reflux, which can progress the picture up to Barret’s esophagus, is one of the diseases that must be treated.
Gastritis; Gastritis, known as a kind of inflammation of the gastric mucosa, is seen in two ways. The complaint of gastritis, which presents an acute or chronic picture, may first cause erosion and then ulceration if it progresses. Gastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori bacteria should also not be forgotten.
There are many reasons that can cause hemorrhoids; but often the cause of hemorrhoids is not fully understood. If hemorrhoids are located under the skin on the outside of the anus, they are called external, and if they are located in the last part of the large intestine, which we call the rectum, they are called internal hemorrhoids.
