I was diagnosed with a small area of Barrett’s oesophagus at the base of my gullet about 4 years ago. Two days ago I underwent my second surveillance gastroscopy and knew by the amount of time they took doing the procedure that something wasn’t right. They took a great many biopsies and when it was all over told me they had found a ‘lump’ about midway in my oesophagus. I’m just 60yrs old and have no symptoms at all, no problems swallowing or any of the symptoms of oesophageal cancer. The doctor said nothing informative but looked very grave. I’ve now got to wait ages for a CT scan and the biopsy results. Are all looking lumps in the oesophagus cancerous. I’m expecting the very worst at the moment. Be good to hear from anyone with experience in this area.
