I have felt "lumpy" in my chest when I swallow or eat for years and it is getting worse. I know I have asthma reflux from the endoscopy that was done ten years ago. I am going back for another one soon and of course am really trying not to "go there" to the cancer thing. My neighbor died of esophogeal cancer and my swallowing discomfort started at the time of her diagnosis so I've been telling myself it is "in my mind" all this time. That's what I did with the many symptoms I had for anal cancer until the big bleed. I also have to go back to the colo-rectal surgeon for a check up the same week. I am really feeling old and beat up with allergies and asthma! Wahhhhhhhhh! I heard at church that two people within our parish had a return of their cancers to∂ay. Gahhhhhhhhh! You all know what this is like.
