Doctor :   How can I help you?

Doctor :   Do you follow?
User :   yes
User :   i also had a diffucult time swallowing so now the GI doctor wants to do a endoscopy
Doctor :   Ok
User :   so i am kinda freaking out if its cancer or just the h pylori causing everything
Doctor :   Long standing H pylori infections are reported in some case to cause gastric cancers.
Doctor :   However, the symptoms of gastric cancers are more often pain abdomen, vomiting, absence of stools, abdominal distension, loss of weight and so on.
Doctor :   Difficulty in swallowing can be due to a oesophagal or the upper gi problems.
Doctor :   Unless the gastric cancers are in last stages, oesophagal obstructions may not be seen.
User :   yeah they think maybe i might have bad acid reflux and it irritated my esophagus thats why i had a hard time swallowing
Doctor :   Hence it is unlikely that your present problem may be related to any cancers.
Doctor :   Yes, probably it is the reflux.
