I am in the 4th stage of Hepatitis C. Getting vomiting,cough and burns in throat,chest and left breast

Hi, I am in the 4th stage of liver disease/Hep C and I have had terrible regurgitation episodes without warning which produce vomit in my esophogus that burns my throat , middle chest , and under my left breast severely. I have to cough to try and clear the liquid for 30 minutes. It feels like I m drowning in acid. Could this be a sign of liver cancer?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic forum,

Well the symptoms you mentioning may not be due to cancer but probably due to portal hypertension which is very much expected in you , get an Upper GI endoscopy and rule out Oesophageal Varicies. As they could be severe bleeding spots if untreated.

Thanks for visiting
