 I am 40 years old,I had a barium swallow test it shows that my stomach is inflamed and my oesophagus is thickened. I am hoping this is not the Cancer, I do fine I have a lack of energy  and sometimes on the hard breath,don’t know if problems are from GERD or if this is Cancer if it is Cancer is it curable????

      Bruce, I've got cancer, 2 years ago, of the eye, all cancer removed, and reconstruction done, at the time and now I don't give a monkeys! So for me its possible its traveling? But?????  I'm a sports man, so when I'm on the treadmill 10km out in the mountains, and my breathing is good, heart beat is low! I'm fine, total contradicting of my symptoms in bed, at night, if you want to talk one to one, let me know. I'll give you my contact number, I'm honest and you can trust me.
