Dysphagia is difficulty in swallowing. The condition indicates that there is an issue with an individual’s throat or esophagus. Esophagus is basically the muscle-bound tubing that helps transports food and fluids to the stomach, from the throat. While the swallowing difficulties occur across the spectrum, the elder and infants, along with those who have a nervous system problem are more prone to it.
Scientists have identified many issues that could hinder the working of the throat or esophagus. While a certain proportion is not very serious, a noticeable portion is. Dysphagia is diagnosed only when the individual continuously finds it hard to swallow over regular points in time. This means that the person does not have dysphagia if he/she finds it hard to swallow once or twice (which is actually fairly normal).
