    Okay, take a deep breath. you must be overwhelmed and Fed up with the pain and the problems with eating. the throat is a very delicate area and if you have reflux and food getting stuck, then it might be inflamed which will make it feel even more sore. you might be causing your throat to tighten without realising it by becoming anxious when you eat, causing food to get stuck. I presume you have had blood tests? cancer markers would show up on your results so try not to worry. x

    Sorry that you are having such a hard time. Try making a ginger tea. Using fresh ginger, slice it really thin, boil in water and add honey to sweeten. The more you drink the better your throat will feel. Take care and let us know if you this works for you.
