The singer Morrissey has finally opened up about the health woes that caused him to cancel part of his tour last month: Barrett’s esophagus, a condition known to increase the risk of esophageal cancer. Rolling Stone also reported that the former Smiths frontman suffered from a bleeding ulcer, as well as a concussion. “The positive from all of this is that there are now no known ailments left for me to try,” Morrissey said in a statement.

Barrett’s esophagus is a common condition among people who also suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is when acid is regurgitated back into the esophagus from the stomach, the Mayo Clinic reported. Barrett’s esophagus occurs when that regurgitated acid damages the esophageal lining, making the esophageal lining look like the stomach’s lining, according to the National Institutes of Health.
