From what I've read and heard around these boards and on the internet, the risk of cancer from reflux is much less that you might think. Even Barrett's esophagus rarely leads to cancer. If you're not a heavy smoker or alcohol abuser, you don't need to worry. It's not like you're ignoring your symptoms...you're proactively getting yourself checked and moving forward.
Don't spend a moment projecting fearful outcomes into your future. Just enjoy this day and know that soon you'll have more answers. You will cope with whatever happens when it happens, but there's no way to cope with something before it happens! You're just making yourself miserable for no good reason! Put that TM of yours to work, and stay in the NOW! As you know, that's all there is!
Hang in there...
