I have always had digestive issues with regards to

Customer Question

I have always had digestive issues with regards ***** ***** etc and I had c difficile years ago but never suffered with heartburn/acid reflux. However for the past couple of weeks, it feels as if there's a lump of phlegm in my throat permamently but especially when I swallow or eat. It also feels like there is something permanently stuck in the middle of my chest in the middle of my breasts, like food is stuck. There isn't any heartburn or acid. I am worrying about it a lot and therefore when I eat food I can feel it going down and it's uncomfortable especially harder foods . I am so scared I have esophagal cancer. I haven't ever had this feeling before or heartburn. Please help
