    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    I beat esophageal cancer in 2014, was cancer free for 3 years, felt something funny in my throat, like something was stuck & I could not swallow it,went to ENT to check it out and he found a tumor, he performed a biopsy on it and it came back as cancer, stage 1. This was on 3/14/17. Still trying to decide on surgery or radiation. I can heal from surgery, but side effects from radiation are forever.
