| | I'm a teen and all things point towards it, PLEASE HELP!!!
About a year ago Food used to get stuck in my chest area, especially stuff like bread. I ignored that. Then it started to get worse, it started to produce a sharp pain in my back and in my chest area when something was badly clogged there, like lots of bread. Then I got worried when I read about esophagus cancer, but I had no symptoms. I went to my doctor, and she dismissed is as my throat behaving weirdly, and that i should do this test where they X-Ray me while I swallow this liquid. She also asked if I had heartburn or a bad taste in my mouth, I said no.
I walked out feeling good that I probably didn't have esophagus cancer. But I was wrong. A month later I started having these weird times where I infact did have weird tastes in the back of my mouth randomely, but now that has stopped (odd), and I started getting heartburn regularly, even when not eating foods(Still happens now, just not as often).
The real scare for me is recently i've noticed that when i eat, I can feel my food going down my throat, no biggy, but sometimes I feel like its going...over something, like a lump. Now I have difficulty swallowing near my "adams apple" and I always feel like my food is passing over something.
Now today, I ate a gummy bear, as I found a pack randomely in my cupboard, and it has been stuck in my throat for about an hour, and I can feel it. Nothing has seemed to get it down, water, other food, and even the dreaded bread.
So, do I have esophagus cancer?
Is it possible to have 2 tumors in your throat at the same time?
Is it too late for me?
I really don't want my mom to find out I have uncurable cancer, she would be devasted, and my health isn't that good, and she's always been warning me that if I don't change my eating, non excercise habits, that it will soon catch up with me. She also says she doesn't want to be in a hospital room with me one day, holding my hand.
So please answer these questions, my X-ray thing is coming up, and I am really nervous, and i'd like to know this now.
