Upper esophagus cancer? HELP
PLEASE I NEED ADVICE
I did post this on GERD but thought someone here may help me. I have had an extremely bad "sore throat" under the adams apple in between the collarbone area for quite some time now and have that nocturnal acid reflux that has recently gotten worse despite increasing my PPI's and Zantac. I also have chronic sinusitis and post nasal drip. The ENT said he can not see beyond the adams apple with his scope--that it is the part of the esophagus. The gastro doc did an upper endoscopy 2 years ago and said I had some gastritis and esophagitis. I assumed he looked at the sore spot in my "throat" (which wasn't this sore then). I recently got a copy of the report on my own and he was talking about at the bottom valve. When I asked him about the upper spot he said he can not see there with the scope --- that is for the ENT????????? Who do I go to so I can find out what is going on there?? I am afraid I might have cancer there. Isn't that where the upper valve is? Don't know if the dry mouth I have is contributing also. I have just had that since last March.
I am scared and don't know what to do. I know the post nasal drip is not helping the throat but the gastro doc doesn't seem to be worried about it. Also, I have recently developed an allergy to both synthetic and natural rubber (latex and non latex) and fluorinated rubber is in the tip and angle of the endoscope. My sinuses did swell up about 20 hours after the nose scope (I get delayed reactions) and I am scared also if I talked the gastro doc into doing another scope that my esophagus and throat will swell up after I am home. What would happen if I couldn't swallow?
