As the title says, I am really scared that I might have cancer. I am not in the risk group in a sense that I am 27-year-old female, but I have not been able to eat any solid food in the last 3.5 months. Last year I had a period when I had strong indigestion and difficulty swallowing that was much easier than now, which I had gastroscopy done for and they didn't find anything on biopsies but heartburn and small hiatus hernia.
Would it be possible for cancer to develop in a year?
I realized today that I had all the symptoms in the last months - first I had food getting stuck "in my chest" with progressive difficulty swallowing until I could not swallow even thick liquids anymore. So I haven't had real food in more than 3 months. I lost 12 kgs and weight now around 47 kgs in total. I have heartburn and had to stop medication yesterday before gastroscopy next Friday, and live on Ensure, shakes and chicken soup. The hospital was playing with me in a sense that they postponed my tests now for more than three months and I wonder if it's smart of me that I didn't push for it sooner.
Is that how that started for many of you? Is it possible to have "clear" gastroscopy one year and then develop the disease the next year?
