Heartburn symptoms may be a sign of a more serious problem, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. Left untreated, GERD can lead to esophagitis (bleeding, scarring), esophageal strictures and Barrett’s esophagus (a change in the lining of the esophagus that increases the risk of developing an invasive cancer known as adenocarcinoma).
