Thanks for posting your query.
You are struggling with Dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing. Not only tumor/Cancer but many other conditions may cause difficulty in swallowing.Muscular dystrophy or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) should also be ruled out.It can also be caused when the muscle in your esophagus doesn't relax enough to let food pass into your stomach.However in old ages Tumor may be the cause.
You need to visit your doctor and perform labs like endoscopy, manometry or/and barium x-ray.
Afterwards your doctor will prescribe you treatment and you will get well.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
