  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Gallbladder
  • Pancreas
  • Bile ducts
  • Liver
  • Small Intestine

Some of the most common conditions affecting the gastrointestinal tract include:

  • Peptic ulcers
  • Crohn's disease
  • Stomach or colon cancer
  • Hiatal hernia
  • Hemorrhoids

Symptoms of Gastrointestinal Diseases

While each gastrointestinal condition must be treated differently, they often show the same symptoms. In fact, many times, conditions in one part of the GI tract can affect, or cause damage, to another if left untreated.

For example, one of the most common gastrointestinal symptoms, heartburn, is caused by acid reflux in the esophagus. Acid reflux can be isolated, but also can indicate a more serious condition that needs immediate medical care.
