Whether the doctor says he found a lump, bump, polyp, mass, tumor, or growth, none are good to hear. They are often used interchangeably. Especially after a cancer diagnosis of any kind it would be scary to hear one of those words in reference to your esophagus. I hope they are able to find out what it is and do something about your swallowing, voice and choking issues. Don't forget: not all bumps are cancerous!

As to the diverticulitis, did you know that more than half of Americans over age 60 have diverticulOSIS? My husband is one of them. DiverticulITIS is caused by small pieces of stool that become trapped in pouches of the inner lining of the large intestine (colon). Once the pouches form they do not disappear. When the pouches become inflamed or infected then you have diverticulitis. It is mostly controlled with dietary changes and possibly antibiotics.

I am glad we all have this site to visit. I personally appreciate knowing that no matter what I am going through someone here has been through it also and can understand.

Good luck and keep us posted.

You have my prayers too! I had a growth on my esophagus two years back. I was having problems swallowing and and I had a dry cough. I was scared to death, but when they took it out they diagnosed it as a benign granduloma. It was fine. I hope and pray that you have something like this.

I am so very sorry and I do hope it is a quick fix. They should never give you news when you just wake up and they give you all this information that you can't possibly retain. Wish someone would do it to them. Where did they learn how to give important news, did they forget to attend class that day?'

Am hoping that you have your answer. Call that the least they owe you on Tuesday.

Best,

Doris
