Acid reflux or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is a condition where people experience irritation in the chest after eating or experience the food rising back through the food pipe. This is a common condition caused by the excessive secretion of the stomach acid and it reaching the food pipe. People suffering from acid reflux are recommended some food and lifestyle changes and medications. While acid reflux is a common problem, you shouldn’t ignore some red flag signs. Symptoms like difficulty swallowing, weight loss, and more can indicate cancer development.
