Take Charge of Your Health
At WATS3D, we believe that the more information you have, the better you are able to take charge of your health. We are therefore providing you a brief overview on the relationship between some common conditions and a more in-depth fact sheet on each.
Rest assured, the more you know about WATS3D the more you can feel secure that WATS3D represents a scientific breakthrough that can help protect your health.
As you may know, Heartburn, or acid reflux, is quite common. In fact some 30 million Americans develop chronic acid reflux, also known as GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease). Of those, some 10-20% will develop a condition called Barrett’s esophagus. Over time a small percentage of Barrett’s cases will turn into Esophageal cancer.
However, a recent breakthrough endoscopy procedure called WATS3D can help your doctor detect early-stage precancerous cells. These cells can then be removed or destroyed before they can turn into Esophageal Cancer and harm you.
We are not talking about the early detection of cancer that people hear so much about, whereby cancer is caught early so the patient has a better survival rate. Rather, WATS3D is about helping to make Esophageal Cancer a potentially preventable disease. Much like a pap smear has protected millions of Americans from ever getting cervical cancer. The colonoscopy has protected millions from colon cancer and the BrushTest protects you from ever getting oral cancer.
