I have stomach skin growing as lump in my gullet. What is it ?

I have a lump in my throat . A biopsy was done and it is non cancerous. However, investigation has revealed that the lump is actually a patch of skin that is consistent with the skin type of the lining of my tummy. The ent specialist has never seen this before and i am being referred to a gastro specialist. I am concerned and trying to find out if anybody has experience of this. I am 44. I have no problems eating . I have no pain or discomfort from this. I sort of noticed it over time when occasionally I had the sensation that something was not quite normal. CT Scan show nothing. Not viewable via scope. Hence operation under general anaesthetic to check it out.

ENT Specialist 's  Response
If it is not seen by scope/ CT scan and biopsy shows non-cancerous tissue, then nothing to worry. Your obstructive feeling in throat may be due to low level of hemoglobin. Please eat spinach daily and drink a glass of slight warm milk ( add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder) at every night for 1 month. You will be all right! Wish you a speedy recovery.
