Barium swallow test - enough to rule out esophageal cancer?
I've had some trouble swallowing for a couple of months and an ENT suggested a barium swallow test. The results were relatively normal:
It mentions "delay as the bolus passes from the lower part of the throat without any obvious cause - so most likely a muscular function or relaxation problem." and that the "lining of the esophagus appeared normal after the delay".
Every time I google my particular set of symptoms, I end up reading about esophageal cancer. Should my barium result give me peace of mind and stop the worrying?
