Quality of Life in Barrett's Esophagus and GERD:GERD Symptoms, Perception of Cancer Risk, and Actual Cancer Risk


The presence of GERD symptoms is associated with a significant decrease in quality of
life.While a diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus is also associated with a decrease in quality
of life, these studies evaluated Barrett's esophagus patients with GERD symptoms.It is
unclear whether decrements in quality of life from cancer risk in patients with Barrett's
esophagus are due to actual cancer risk or a patient's false perception.Here we Compare the
overall quality of life of patients with no Barrett's esophagus , non-dysplastic Barrett's
Esophagus (NDBE), Barrett's esophagus with low grade dysplasia (LGD), and Barrett's
esophagus with high grade dysplasia (HGD). The Investigators will also Compare the overall
quality of life of Barrett's esophagus patients with severe gastroesophageal reflux disease
(GERD) symptoms to those with no GERD symptoms. Finally the investigators will compare the
overall quality of life of patients with a perceived low risk of esophageal cancer to those
with a perceived high risk of esophageal cancer
