It started about 6 weeks ago . I felt i had a lump in my throat . I can eat and drink fine but sometimes i can bring mouthfuls of food back up . It feels as though half way down into my stomach around my breast boe it hurts . Ive looked it up and it says can be caused by reflux but i dont have heartburn . Other thing it said was signs of cancer so now im freaking out . Can anyone help put my mind at rest .

    Hi Carol,

    Those are symptoms of gerd.  A common misconception is that gerd always involves heartburn, I have it and never have heartburn.  Of coure it's possible it your symptoms could involve other things too - and regardless of what it is you should see a doctor immediately.  But I sure wouldn't jump to the worst case scenario of cancer when there are other much more likely causes!

    Untreated gerd can increase the risk of cancer, so that's another reason to see a doctor.  I don't mean to scare you, again, these are gerd symptoms. I'm just saying don't put off seeing a doctor.
