Re: What is the chance of getting throat cancer?
I wouldn't worry too much yet about cancer. It's a concern, of course, but if your doctor wasn't worried, I wouldn't. You should ask the ENT what the chances are - I'd like to hear. I haven't found any stats, which could be partly because it seems LPR is only a "recent" phenomenon that researchers are looking into. Meanwhile, I know that your chance of esophageal cancer when you have just the GERD (no Barrett's) is about 0.2%.
