Edwin Cass Nearly 300,000 participants and millions of Internet users attended the Potosina National Fair last Saturday, August 26, with close news: Singer A solid team suffered Cancer He had already defeated it.
The regional Mexican singer was honest with his audience, who were surprised when he revealed his suffering Barrett’s esophagusA condition associated with an increased risk of developing esophageal cancer acquired from inadequate treatment of an interstitial hernia.
“I never want to say it, but I think this is the perfect night to explain my surgery to them. I’m just going to say it, I want you to understand why I want to get out now… It’s a hiatal hernia, and it’s getting complicated. came up and it worked for me, so it turns out to be Barrett’s esophagus and Barrett’s esophagus cancer,” the singer said, drawing a long silence due to the nature of the information.
He and his brother though Johnny Cass They have made it clear that the singer’s poor health is a thing of the past, and Internet users and fans have begun to search for what the condition is and what symptoms he is experiencing.
Barrett’s esophagus is a condition where the lining of the esophagus (the tube that connects the mouth to the stomach) resembles the lining of the intestine. This disturbance is often the result of chronic exposure to stomach acid, such as in people with chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
Why does it lead to cancer?
Cellular changes: In Barrett’s esophagus, the normal cells in the esophagus (squamous cells) are replaced by intestinal cells (columnar cells). These cellular changes are adaptations to the constant acidic environment due to reflux. Although columnar cells can handle acid better than squamous cells, they are not normal in the esophagus and become precancerous.
Dysplasia: Over time, the columnar cells in Barrett’s esophagus can undergo additional changes called dysplasia. Dysplasia is a measure of cellular change between normal cells and cancer. The more advanced the dysplasia, the greater the risk of developing esophageal cancer.
Cancer: If dysplasia is not detected and treated, it can progress to esophageal adenocarcinoma, a type of cancer of the esophagus. Although Barrett’s esophagus increases the risk of esophageal cancer, it is important to note that most people with this condition do not develop cancer.
Prevention and follow-up: People with Barrett’s esophagus usually have regular endoscopies to monitor the condition of their cells. If dysplasia is diagnosed, treatment may be needed to prevent the development of cancer. People with GERD, persistent or severe symptoms, or those with other risk factors should see a doctor for proper diagnosis and follow-up.
