Visit your gastroenterologist in Manhattan if you’re experiencing  abdominal pain .  Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. Simple symptoms ranging from prolonged gas to difficulty swallowing can signal early signs of more serious conditions. If your symptoms turn out to be nothing more than a reaction to a change in your diet or a simple infection, you’ll feel better for having checked with a professional who specializes in stomach disorders. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
Another valid reason to visit a gastroenterologist or digestive doctor is to schedule a colonoscopy or other regular cancer screening procedure. If you’re 45 years old or older (or even earlier depending on risk factors) and haven’t been tested for colon cancer, make your appointment now. It could save your life.

Don’t Ignore These Symptoms

Digestive system symptoms usually don’t appear as isolated events. Most often, several occur around the same time. It’s the combination — along with targeted testing — that help your gastroenterologist make an accurate diagnosis. Some symptoms, when they occur with other symptoms, can signal a serious illness.

If you experience any of the conditions below, you should schedule an appointment with a reputable gastroenterologist likeour doctors at Manhattan Gastroenterology.  Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

5 Gastrointestinal Conditions to Have Treated

1.  Hemorrhoids rarely kill anyone, but they cause untold amounts of pain and embarrassment. Most cases resolve on their own or with over-the-counter medication. Some cases — especially internal hemorrhoids, where they form inside your rectum — can be very painful and very difficult to treat. If you have internal hemorrhoids or a severe case of hemorrhoids, visit a New York City gastroenterologist.  Our doctors have treatments unavailable to a general practitioner. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

2.  Almost everyone suffers from occasional short-term acid reflux. This indigestion usually doesn’t last longer than a day and may even disappear after a couple hours. If the feeling persists, however, it could be a sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a treatable illness. Other symptoms may include unexplained weight loss, chest pain, sore throat, dry cough, wheezing or gastroesophageal reflux disease. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

3.  You should see a doctor right away if you’re vomiting blood. This is an emergency and you may need to call 911.  If you’re also experiencing some GERD symptoms (see #2 above) as well as black, tarry or bloody stools, visit a gastroenterologist as these are alarming symptoms. It could be a sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease, a sometimes pre-cancerous condition or any one of several concerning conditions including cancer. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

4.  Chronic diarrhea, abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, cramps, and blood in your stool are all serious enough symptoms on their own. But if you experience this combination, especially when accompanied by ulcers in your colon or mouth, it could signal Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s is a serious illness that could require surgery. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

5.  Jaundice occurs when your skin or eyes develop a yellowish tinge. This condition could signals a deadly disease such as hepatitis or pancreatic disease or many other concerning conditions including cancer. But besides the telltale jaundice, this disease can show symptoms that can mimic gastrointestinal disorders. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

Light-colored stools or dark-colored urine can be a sign of hepatitis and other concerning conditions including cancer. If you experience a loss of appetite, fatigue, fever, nausea, muscle and abdominal pain and vomiting, you should see a doctor immediately. Any and all symptoms should be diagnosed by your gastroenterologist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
