Hi. I'm 27 and female and recently (a week ago) had an endoscopy because I've been having difficulty swallowing solid food. The doctor that performed it said that he saw a growth down there and took biopsies. Since then things have gone crazy, I've had a full body CT scan and on Wednesday (two days from now) I'm meeting back up with my doctor for the results. Basically I'm terrified and I'm just wanting to know what to expect and my likelyhood of surviving this - I see there are a few people who have had the operation and seem to be ok - is this a reasonable prognosis for me? I'm generally fit, I recently took part in a two mile open water swim, I go to the gym most nights after work and also take two dance classes a week too - that's got to count for something right?
