Diseases, Disorders, and Dysfunctions
Closed LES (loweresophageal sphincter)
An ulcer is a small erosion (hole) in the gastrointestinal tract. The most common type, duodenal, occurs in the first 12 inches of small intestine beyond the stomach.
Ulcers that form in the stomach are called gastric ulcers.
Small calculi (stones)
The most common symptom of internal hemorrhoids is bright red blood on stool, on toilet paper, or in the toilet bowl after a bowel movement.
Hemorrhoids are swollen and inflamed veins around the anus or in the lower rectum.
About 75 percent of people will have hemorrhoids at some point in their lives. Hemorrhoids are most common among adults ages 45 to 65 and in pregnant women.
Polyps are abnormal growths arising from the inside lining of the colon or rectum.
They protrude into the intestinal canal. Some are flat (sessile) while others are on a stalk (peduncular).
