Get rid of Barretts before it turns to cancer
My barretts went to low and then high grade dysplasia and then a small cancer tumor. I had my esophagus removed and havent eaten well since. It was removed in 2007.  It makes sense to treat the Barretts before it turns to dysplasia.  They say only 5-10 % of Barretts turns to cancer --- well mine certainly did.

If you have Barretts and your GERD doesnt respond well with medications --- please consider having photodynamic therapy, Chemical or thermal ablation, endoscopic mucosal resection to get rid of the Barretts.  If you get rid of the Barretts -- less chance of turning to cancer. Get into a clinical trial if your insurance wont cover it.  You will need to probably travel to where the trials are done.  Well worth it if you can avoid esophagus removal.
