Wanted to get some feedback here. For about the last two to 3 months I've had a burning type pain on the right side of my chest when I swallow liquid or solid food. I've been on a high dosage (80 mg/day) of omeprazole for the last month, and the pain has not resolved. Seems as if for a few days the pain will subside and go away, but it almost always comes back.
I'm in a near panic thinking this could be esophageal cancer. I'm 31 years old and had an endoscopy about a year ago that only showed acid reflux. Could esophageal cancer have grown thus quickly as to show symptoms? What else would cause a burning feeling when swallowing for months even under heavy acid suppression for 4 weeks? I'm going to order some additional imaging studies like a barium swallow but I'm at my wits end. Any help here would be much appreciated.
