  • Heh... same here. I am 24 and worried I have esophageal cancer. However after researching it for awhile it would be incredibly rare for either you or me to have this type of cancer, I believe the statistics are less than 1 in a 100,000. If you are concerned ask a health care practitioner, I have asked both my aunt(a doctor for over 20 years) and my god mother(a nurse practitioner) and they have said it is probably nerves in my case... but I'm going to go to a local doctor and have them check me out.
