Throat cancer or gerd

Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer or gerd

throat

They came back normal, and diagnosed me with GERD and torn muscles in my upper back, and muscle strain in my elbows. I believe I've had GERD for most or all of my life, but without the heartburn. I never realized what I had. When I was in my early 20's, I would notice a gurgling noise/sensation coming from my throat, mainly after eating, and I would also wake up with bad breath with a funny filmy feeling on my teeth.
Hi I have had severe Gerd for almost 11 months now. I take Ranitidine 1 tablet in morning and 1 eve I also take Gastrocote when needed. My main problem is acid rising to the throat where I constantly clear my throat particularly at night even though I raise my head. I also get burning to my throat and sour saliva taste which come after meals which is hard to get rid of. I have seen specialist but awaiting results for my ph oesophagus test.
This time around I can feel it in my throat pretty much constantly, it tastes bad but is not coming all the way up and it doesn't matter if I'm laying down or not or even if I have eaten. I have a feeling like in the past this will go away in a few months out of the blue. It's really annoying to say the least. So I guess my biggest concern is getting Barrett's esphagus. I'm worried about throat cancer.
Thx but the question is could it be a gerd or an oropharyngeal cancer coz I have to wait one week before seeing my doctor
My doc rx'd pantaloc for 30 days and a bland diet with a wait and see what happens. I'm wondering if my symptoms sound like GERD, or another ulcer, or what? My doc did not comment as to the cause just rx'd meds with no testing.
I don't have any other symptoms like a sore throat or lump in my neck. I am a former light to moderate smoker and petrified to go to the doc.
I went to see an ENT and he did a scope (went in through the nose and looked down at the throat), I had a CT of the throat, and an Ultrasound of my thryroid and a Upper GI Series (Barium Swallow). There was nothing he could see from the scoping, the CT came back negative, the Barium swallow showed mild to moderate acid reflux, and the ultrasound showed nodules (which the doc said was nothing to worry about). All in all everything that was done did not show any type of mass or obstruction.
I would agree with the ENT that your throat symptoms are those of GERD, which is another symptom of hypothyroidism. I had them (and GERD) for years, so I'm very familiar with them.
Hi Folks, For the last couple of years I have been on 40mg Omeprazole due to GERD. My GERD now seems to be getting worse—(mainly the burning feeling in the back of the throat) and I have added an H2 to the mix and occasionally pop a Gaviscon or something along those lines. Although my symptoms are more of an annoyance at this point, being a hypochondriac I am beginning to worry about Barrett’s or the Big C.
I always thought it was because he smoked, but after his death, I wonder if GERD was also part of it, He probably had chronic GERD and didn't know it, or thought it was because of his smoking habit. Besides my two GERD episodes, I rarely have heartburn (except for my two pregnancies, but only occasionally, and I read that this is quite normal and common). Should I worry and see my doctor?
My concern is,,the symptoms of Gerd and cancer of the esophagus seem the same. Ive been researching online and see that gerd is a very common complaint but the idea of cancer of the esophagus is worrying me as the prognossis is so poor. I do have an appointment at the Docs in 10 days.Can you please advise further?
I have never experienced anything like this before in my life. Could I be experiencing any form of throat cancer or do you think this is (or could be) entirely a symptom of GERD?

2 days ago I had acid reflux and still have a sore throat. I also feel as though I have a lump in my throat and cannot stop burping after meals. I also have had a cough since the acid reflux, with mild indegestion at the moment. When I look back I suppose I have been suffering acid reflux and indegestion for some time now but havn.t really worried about it, but now it is worrying me because the symptoms have got worse.
Hello I am a 28 year old male and I am concerned about throat cancer. Almost 2 and a half weeks ago I had laid down to take a nap and when I awoke I had weird pain on the left side of my throat when I swallowed. This lasted for about a day and got a lot better but there was still some minor pain every so often when I swallowed. I do have acid reflux and allergies with bad post nasal drip and had a scope about 2 and a half years ago showing some minor irritation around my focal cords.
difficulty in swallowing can be a sign of low thyroids, high thyroids, nodules in the throat, or other throat diseases; but, one way to diagnose thyroids is by checking the TSH AND FSH levels (the thyroid's hormones).

Hiatal Hernia 2. Circopharyngeal Spasm or 3. Symptoms of my untreated Gerd. I will treat my Gerd for 60 days and I'm told by many if symptoms have not gone away or nearly disappeared I can rule that out. I myself am leaning toward the Circopharyngeal Spasm as my symptoms worsen as the day goes on and is not noticeable in the morning. Do you find the lump in your throat feeling worsens as the day progresses mark?

The Larynx cancer because my chance of it was only multiplied by the untreated GERD and smoking.

The Barretts Esophogus because of not treating my GERD for so long.
Somehow I think I've managed to let a pretty bad case of acid reflux go untreated for at least several years or who knows how long (I'm 30 years old) and I've been attributing my symptoms to other things. What are the chances that I may have developed erosion or esophageal cancer at my age with untreated GERD? Can anyone else relate? I'm very concerned because I've never had an endoscopy done yet.
I WOKE UP CHOKING LAST NIGHT FROM WHAT I BELIEVE WAS ACID OBSTRUCTING MY BREATHING AND POSSIBLY ENTERING MY LUNGS. IT TOOK A GOOD 30 SECONDS OR MORE TO REGAIN MY BREATH. AFTER MY THROAT WAS A BIT SORE AND MY STOMACH UPSET. I BELIEVE THIS WAS PROBABLY SEVERE ACID REFLUX. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF I COULD HAVE DIED FROM THIS INCIDENT?? NOW I AM VERY NERVOUS TO SLEEP AT NIGHT FOR FEAR THAT I MAY DIE CHOKING IN MY SLEEP.
Hi, welcome to the forum, the possibilities of such trickling in throat are Allergic or seasonal rhinitis, Bacterial pharyngitis or tonsillitis, Sinusitis, Influenza etc. It is very important to point out the source of infection. This feeling of something there in the throat is known as Globus sensation. This is mainly seen in gastro esophageal reflex disease or hyperplastic tonsil. You should stop taking spicy food, vinegar, alcohol, cigarette smoking if present.
