Medical Conditions to be discussed with your Gastroenterologist

A gastroenterologist is an expert in treating the following conditions for which the patient takes consultation:

Anorectal fistulas

A fistula is a tiny channel or tract which develops in the presence of infection and inflammation. This may or may not be related to abscess but certain illnesses such as Crohn’s disease can lead to the development of fistulas. It runs from the rectum to the opening in the skin in and around the anus area. However, women suffering from Crohn’s disease or obstetric injuries have a fistula which opens into the vagina or the bladder.

Anal fissures

It refers to the small tear in the lining of the anus, similar to a tear at the corner of the mouth in cold water. The same results from a hard dry bowel movement resulting in a tear in the tissue which may bleed or itch in the long run, especially during bowel movements.

Abscesses

It refers to a localised pocket of pus caused by infection from the bacteria. This can occur in any part of the body and when the bacteria seep into the underlying tissues in the anal canal, an abscess tends to develop. Certain health problems like Crohn’s disease (chronic inflammatory bowel disease) can increase the risk of forming abscess inside and also around the anal canal. Patients with low immunity are more likely to develop anal abscesses.

Celiac disease (CD)

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease which occurs in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten is leading to damage in the small intestine. These damages over time lead to the damage of villi, which refer to small finger-like projections that align the small intestine, which promote nutrient absorption.

Colorectal cancer

It is a type of cancer which starts in the colon or the rectum and can also be named rectal or colon cancer, which depends on where they start. The colon cancer along with the rectal cancer is often grouped together as they have various features in common.

Diverticular disease

It refers to a condition which leads to small bulges (diverticula) or sacs which are formed inside the wall of the large intestine (colon). These sacs can develop at any place inside the colon and are the most common in the sigmoid colon which is the part of the large intestine.

 Fatty liver disease

There are two types of fatty liver disease:

  • Simple fatty liver: Fat deposits in the blood but little or no inflammation or liver cell damage. This condition rarely grows serious.
  • Non – alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH): Inflammation and fat in the liver as well as the liver cell damage. Inflammation and liver cell damage often results in scarring of the liver as well as fibrosis. This condition may even progress to cirrhosis or liver cancer.

Gallbladder diseases (such as gallstones, cholecystitis, or gallbladder cancer):

Gallstones are frequently occurring type of gallbladder disease which is most commonly made from cholesterol and solidified bile. When the gallstone blockage gets severe, it can cause swelling in the gall bladder which happens when the gall bladder does not drain properly. This condition is clinically known as cholecystitis.

The cancer which develops in the gallbladder is known as gallbladder cancer which is quite uncommon but when it develops and is identified at early stages, chances of recovery are very good. Most gallbladder cancers are discovered at a late stage when the treatment is not very effective.

Gastroenteritis

It is an intestinal infection in which there is diarrhea, cramps, nausea, fever, and vomiting.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)

This condition is a digestive disease in which the bile or the stomach acid irritates the food pipe lining.

Crohn's disease

A condition of chronic inflammatory bowel disease affecting the lining of the digestive tract.

Colon polyps

It refers to a small clump of cells which forms the lining of the colon or the rectum.

Haemorrhoids

Swollen and inflamed veins inside the rectum and the anus which lead to discomfort and bleeding.

Hiatal hernia

In this condition, a part of the stomach pushes up through the diaphragm muscle.

Viral hepatitis

This condition causes liver inflammation and damage.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

It causes pain in the stomach, along with wind, diarrhea and constipation as it affects the intestines.

Liver cancer

This cancer develops in the cells of the liver and several types of cancer can form as a result of this cancer. The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma.

Pancreatitis

Inflammatory condition of the organ which lies behind the lower part of the stomach – pancreas.

Peptic ulcer

It is a sore which develops in the lining of the oesophagus, stomach or small intestine.

Stomach cancer

Cancer which develops in the stomach is known as stomach cancer and the most common type of this cancer is adenocarcinoma of the stomach.

Ulcerative colitis

It affects the large intestines and causes chronic, inflammatory bowel disease. It is important to consult a doctor, in this case, to prevent the condition from worsening.
