Esophagitis is an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. If left untreated, this condition can become very uncomfortable, causing problems with swallowing , ulcers, and scarring of the esophagus. In rare instances, a condition known as " Barrett's esophagus" may develop, which is a risk factor for esophageal cancer.
