I've had upper abdominal pain for 2 weeks. it's accompanied by belching after drinking or eating. I have a decreased appetite. the pain is constant. I'm worried because my dad had cancer of the esophagus. he was treated for all types of digestive problems before they found out. by then, the cancer took hold and he died 6 months after they finally figured it out. am I just paranoid ? Does anyone know if this type of cancer is genetic?
