| | Worried about cancer
Hi. I recently went to my doctor because I am having alot of heartburn and wierd pains in my upper abdomen. I do have a reflux problem, but my dr. wanted me to have x-rays done since someone in my family died of stomach cancer.
When I was having the x-rays this morning I just happened to look up at the monitor when we were done and I saw what looked like some kind of a growth or spot or something in my stomach, which was about the size of a fingernail, since the guy taking the x-rays put his finger next to it for scale. When I asked the x-ray tech what it was she said she wasn't qualified to say, I would have to wait up to 4 days for the report.
I am really stressed out over this, I don't know what they found but I am really worried, I almost don't even want to know the results since I have heard that stomach cancer does not have a high survival rate. If anyone has any advice for me or has been through this before I would appreciate it.
