The stomach is a J-shaped muscular, hollow organ in the gastrointestinal tract that is responsible for digesting food. The stomach produces different enzymes and digestive juices, which mix to break down food received from the esophagus so that it can be passed into the small intestine for further processing.

Common Diseases and Conditions of the Stomach

Gastritis : It occurs when the lining of the stomach becomes swollen or inflamed, which can last for a few days to many years.

Gastroenteritis : It refers to the inflammation of the stomach as well as the small bowel. People with an improperly functioning immune system can get adversely ill from gastroenteritis.

Gastroparesis : It is a rare disorder of the stomach where it is not able to empty its contents without any apparent signs of blockage.

Non-Ulcer Dyspepsia : It is a condition when patients tend to suffer from indigestion and other different symptoms that suggest an ulcer, but there is no abnormality found when investigated.

Peptic Ulcers :These ulcers happen to be a break in the surface lining of the stomach that is deep enough to create a crater

Hiatal Hernia : Hiatus refers to the gap in the muscle wall which separates the chest from the abdomen. When the stomach slides up into the chest through this gap, a hiatal hernia occurs. On the other hand, if the stomach pushes through and stays in the chest next to the esophagus, it is known as a paraesophageal hernia.

Stomach Cancer : Stomach cancer or gastric cancer is a cancer of the stomach that begins in the innermost layer of the lining of the stomach.
