Hello guys. I know this may not be the place to post this, but I don't know anywhere else to go. I had an Upper GI endoscopy yesterday to look for Varacies and to have a biopsy of my small bowel because of some anemia I have had. All of that was good, but they ran across a "submucosal lesion" on the distal area of my esophagus. My doctor didn't seem overly concerned to my family (I was still under and didn't get a chance to talk to him), but after doing research I found that 99% of tumors that are found in the esophagus are cancer! However, I will say that the reason behind that is that most people don't have an EGD like that until they are having issues and that these type of lesions are incidental findings on a test like mine. I have a photo of it and it looks just like lump under smooth normal tissue (which is what they say a Lieomyoma or benign lump) is like. Of course I was online last night like crazy and it scared me to death. That type of cancer is very very rough and even found early is bad news. Anyone here had one of these? Are they as rare as they say? I don't have any other symptoms except my normal GERD. The size was about 2-3 CM. I guess I'm just scared and I can't see my doctor for a couple of weeks because he is going to be out of the country. I am supposed to get a call from the nurse on Monday, but I don't know if she can answer my questions. All the places online I look for are cancer sites, and I am scared to go on those. I am really trying not to worry, but with the PBC and the fact that I had Thyroid Cancer, I'm just really scared.
