Misdiagnosed - male4972

Oh No Associated with Adenocarcinoma, Esophagus Cancer. Posted on April 20, 2019 View this journey (2 Experiences)

In 1997, I went to my Family Physician complaining of food occasionally sticking in my throat upon swallowing. He checked my neck Lymph Nodes and with no other symptoms except for a history of GERDS, … pronounced me healthy as a horse, … that I was far too young ( age 49 ) to have any major esophageal problems. To his dismay, … I insisted that a Barium Swallow X-Ray be done. He could not look me in the face when the results came back. An Endoscopy and CT Scan followed in quick succession. I then met with a Thoracic Surgeon and had an 11 hour surgery 10 days later on March 7, 1997.

    I just wrote a lengthy article for you people giving the RISK FACTORS for ESOPHAGEAL CANCER as being : TYPE A PERSONALITY as opposed to TYPE B Personality, and secondly a history of Acid Reflux ( GERDS ) so screening could be done before people develop Stage I, II, II, IV. For those with some intelligence do a GOOGLE search for : Ron Watson Esophageal Cancer and watch my DOCUMENTARY. To WhatNext.com shame on you for NOT publishing my story.
