    Food getting stuck

    For the last 18 months or so I have had intermittent issues with some foods. If I eat dry bread, chicken or heavy meats they will occasionally get stuck. This feeling only passes when I drink a carbonated drink or cough to the point that I am nearly sick and it moves the food up slightly before digesting it.

    I went to the doctors about a year ago and he suggested esophagitis and prescribed me with Omazeprole for 3 months. This cleared the issue until it returned about 3/4 months ago.

    I am 34 and terrified that this could be Esophageal cancer, I have had heart burn for a number of years.

    Given that I have had this intermittently for the best part of two years and it is only with certain solids is it unlikely that it would be cancer?

    Does cancer come and go and is it relieved with PPIs?
