Common Questions and Answers about Throat cancer gerd

throat

Avatar m tn 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
Avatar m tn i have also had some heartburn, so i wonder if these could be the symptoms of gerd. i am seeing an ent, he checked my throat and didn't see any growths and is going to have an mri done on me. in the meantime i am quite frightened, especially of throat cancer, has anyone had the same symptoms? i am beside myself with fear.
Avatar f tn Common causes are anxiety disorder,acid reflux or GERD,biliary disease,cranial nerve compression esp glossopharyngeal and vagus nerve and myasthenia gravis.Throat cancer is unlikely as other symptoms are also present along with feeling of lump in throat. The most common cause is gastro esophageal reflux disease - GERD. Diagnosis is by fibroptic laryngoscopy. Fiberoptic laryngoscopy also helps confirm the GERD diagnosis.
Avatar f tn She says may be from GERD, but I only get acid reflux once or twice a year, though when I do it is up into the mouth, no heartburn. Is there any significant chance that this may be GERD or simple ulcer in my throat or should I try to prepare for a finding of supraglottal cancer?
Avatar f tn About 7 months ago, I was eating a piece of brisket, and when I swallowed it would not go down. I almost had to have someone do the heimlick to get the brisket out of my throat. After continued swallowing with no effect, I tried to drink water with no help the water came up. After what seemed forever and pulling at the brisket with my fingers, I finally swallowed it. There was some bleeding due to trauma of trying to get it out of my throat.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar f tn I am a white 34 year old female, non-smoker/never smoked a day in my life, and rarely drink. I went to the ER Friday evening/Saturday morning because I had chest, arm, and back pain. They drew blood, did an ekg, and an xray. 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.
Avatar n tn I have a lump in my throat and have been to multiple doctors in the past 6 months. I have been to my primary physician (internal medicine specialist), the ER, and to an ENT twice. The ENT diagnosed me with GERD and put me on prilosec, which has controlled my heartburn, but the lump is still there. Both times the ENT used a scope and felt the lump, but said it is not my thyroid, just irritation from the reflux.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I am 30 years old.I have had acid reflux for about 10 years on and off.I have kept it pretty managed, with OTC acid reducers.I have never been tested for Barretts , but I am so afraid I have it and it will turn into cancer.I haven't been sick in about 8 years, not even a cold or even a fever.In good shape,skinny,don't drink,smoke,or ever eat spicy food.I never have any trouble swallowing . I don't have any throat pain at all.
Avatar n tn Well I have taken the prevacid for 2 weeks and not longer have that metal taste in mouth but still I feel like I have a burp stuck in my throat and at times it kind of flutters. Could this be something other that GERD? How about anxiety because I had a aunt die of stomach cancer at age 48...diagnosed at 40 (my age) and this is all making me very anxious! No weigh loss, blood in stool or vomiting . Should I have a blood test for H pylori to be on the safe side?
Avatar m tn I am age 35 and I wonder if this little pain...., It goes away and comes back, but the pain is getting lower not harder, but it comes and goes, Please help?

Avatar m tn The Larynx cancer because my chance of it was only multiplied by the untreated GERD and smoking. I do also have a symptom of Larynx Cancer as I feel like I have a lump in the right side of my throat now but it comes and goes, from searching on the net I don't have any of the other symptoms and definetley no change in voice. The Barretts Esophogus because of not treating my GERD for so long.
496495 tn?1224609863 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.
Avatar n tn Although there are many other causes for sore throat and laryngitis, GERD should be suspected in a patient with chronic sore throat or other GERD symptoms or when no other cause can be found. Severe, long-standing GERD can damage the esophagus and cause a condition known as Barrett's esophagus wherein the normal lining of the esophagus is replaced by a lining more like that of the stomach or intestine.
Avatar f tn I have suggested he insists his doc gets his throat swabbed as my dad had throat cancer and started similar symptoms. He is having chest xray . His mum died of oesophagus cancer. When he coughs he gets relief when food comes up and he has vomited a couple times. His doc now given him GERD tablets and she tried him on steroid puffer which either tmt has worked. What would you suggest.
Avatar f tn One type of HPV (only one, HPV16) indeed causes throat cancer. But throat cancer remains quite rare, despite what might be assumed from recent publicity e.g. Mr. Douglas' case. And it certainly doesn't cause GERD or symptoms of that sort. There is no reason for you to be tested for oral HPV, and no validated, approved tests are available; and neither a positive nor negative result would make any difference in your health care, nor in predictions your risk for future cancer.
Avatar n tn I am suppose to get a Barrium Swallow in a week but i am so scared that i have sometype of throat cancer esp esophogeal cancer. I think about it all day every day esp when i am at work like i am now, it feels like my throat is closing and it just wont go away. Somebody help.
Avatar f tn m still having GERD symptoms - burning abdomen, stomach tender to the touch when poked, acid reflux, lump in throat, burning up back of throat, excessive belching and gas..I've also had diarrhea since the symptoms started almost a year ago. I'm worrying that it's gastric cancer. Three months ago I had two ct scans of the abdomen. One with just iodine contrast and another with both iodine contrast and barium swallow. Both came back fine. Would gastric cancer show up on the ct scans?
Avatar f tn My doc said its due to GERD. I had a barium swallow but it came back normal. Does GERD always hurt? I feel no pain just burning in throat and slight ear discomfort. Immediately after I eat my stomach and intestines make gurgling noises. I'm scared it might be cancer.
Avatar m tn No, it's not likely to be cancer. It takes several months to several years for HPV to develop into cancer. There is something called globus pharyngeus that may be what you're experiencing - https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/318633.php. That's from anxiety, but you should see your doctor to rule out anything with a physical cause, like GERD/acid reflux, or a digestive disorder.

Avatar f tn Is this normal? One of my friends husbands was diagnosed with throat cancer (now in remission) and I am always worrying this throat irritation will turn into cancer. I am not sure how long I may have had LPR, but for years I was always clearing my throat. The burning sensation started about a month ago.
Avatar f tn Hi Laurie, My name is Lori, I'm 39, and I also have Hashi's (and Graves). :-) I'm sorry you're going through this. I had a small goiter and nodules a while back, which have shrunk, luckily. I had the FNA done and it came back negative for cancer, but I was told by the doctor that IF you were to have cancer, that's one place you'd be luckiest to have it because it is very rare that it would spread, and easily removed. So please don't get too worked up about it.
