Hello my name is Anthony/ Im 19. Recently i have had trouble burping. It feels as if when i burp it travels half way up my esophagus then make a growling sound and suddenlly disappears in my chest. I am so worried it could be esophagus cancer. I Have been smoking about a pack every 2 days since i turned 17. I Rarely have acid reflux and when i do it's not bad. I Have been up all night trying to figure what's going on with me. I know it could be GERD But what i read on GERD is it usually caused by acid reflux witch i rarely have. This not being able to burp sensation just came out of no were. Anybody on that can help me. I Will be scedueling a doctors app sometime soon.

Thanks to anybody that replies to this post.

it might just be that your stomach and esophagus got irritated from the medicine that you were taking. Try to modify your diet and see if avoiding acidic foods makes a difference. Also, go see a doctor and see what he says, he can run some test for you.
good luck and keep us posted

Sounds like a great sign you should quit! You are young for that kind of cancer, but you may be having other issues like irritation of the esophagus because of smoking. Smoking massively increases your chance of getting cancer and of dying from cancer. Also, it's been proven that anyone who can smell the smoke around you gets exposed and has a higher risk of cancer too. It also makes your face age a lot faster. As long as you can swallow ok there probably isn't a mass (meaning cancer) blocking your throat. Sometimes esophageal irritation can make the muscles that help you swallow not work properly. Stop smoking for a few days and see if it goes away and also see your doc.

Yeah bro I agree w/ GerdyGirl completely. Just think, maybe in the future you will even be glad that this symptom happened to you now because it will be the reason that you quit smoking. If I were a smoker I'd quit in a second just to have a bit more peace of mind on things like your worry here.
