Re: One sided swallowing difficulties? anyone?

Just had a barium swallow;it showed my esophagus is being pushed to the side. They want me to do a thyroid ultrasound. Is this the usual course to diagnose throat cancer?

Re: One sided swallowing difficulties? anyone?

I have been suffering from GERD, heartburn, dysphagia, and general stomach malaise for almost 3 years now. I've complained to my doctor about it several times. My stomach becomes bloated and very uncomfortable. I've been prescribed Famotidine, Omeprazole, and even an asthma inhaler.

I was experiencing gagging, an annoying tickle in my throat, and sometimes a blockage when trying to swallow. It has been a very annoying 3 years. I've had an endoscopy and a barium swallow test. My endoscopy showed I had a hiatal hernia. That was 2 years ago.

At my last visit, I practically begged my doctor to order another endoscopy as I felt the symptoms were getting worse. She said no, but instead ordered a thyroid ultrasound.

I'm glad she did, because results showed I have several nodules. I'm waiting for a call from the endocrinologist's office who wants to see me now.

The maternal side of my family has a great history of thyroid issues, including thyroid cancer.

I'm anxious for the next steps now.
