Reflux Quiz

Heartburn Quiz1

Reflux is a serious health condition that, if left untreated, can cause cancer, but not all reflux is the same. Acid reflux and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) are common terms used to describe acid that backs up into the esophagus and causes heartburn, indigestion and chest pain. Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR), also known as silent reflux or Silent GERD, is acid that backs up into the esophagus, as well as the ears, nose, throat, vocal cords, sinuses, mouth and lungs. Both are serious health conditions that should not be ignored. So what are your symptoms telling you?

Do you have GERD, which effects up to 40% of the population of the United States and has esophagus cancer risks, or could you be dealing with silent reflux which presents cancer risks of its own? Take our Reflux Quiz today to find out.
