Hello everybody I am new to this forum. Currently experiencing high levels of anxiety and I am seeing a pcp doctor tomorrow. I have had heartburn issues for about 10 years now and I have just taken omeprazole on my own and I’ve never seen a doctor about it. There is a sensitive lump just left of my lower sternum that almost feels rubbery. When I swallow hot liquid I can feel a little burning sensation on that spot as it travels down my esophagus. My voice has always been a little raspy and that hasn’t changed. I’ve never had difficulties swallowing but I have recently. But it’s hard to tell if my anxiety is affecting this or not. My throat seems to be OK but when I drink Alka-Seltzer my throat does feel better. My throat is never in pain but feels irritated sometimes kind a like having allergies . I do burp after I eat or drink something. My hope is that I do not have cancer. Can a hernia feel like the lump I described earlier in this paragraph? I’m really hoping it’s a hernia or something that’s not cancer. But I am very alarmed as when I drink hot liquid I can feel it on that spot where the lump is near.
Much Love and thanks for any help 😁
