Throat Cancer (update from old post)

I went to the doctor for the symptoms I was having. Sore throat, hoarse voice, pain in neck and headaches. Well I had another endoscopy done (3rd one in 6 months). Anyway, they showed me the difference in the pics from the last one I had. Evidently I had some cells there. They did a biopsy of my stomach and my esophagus. Turns out I have some cancer cells. I got the results of the biopsies back last week. They are benign for the time being.I have to keep my GERD under control as this is one of the things that causes cancer if left untreated. I am still having some pain in my throat and the hoarse voice is still there. So I am taking this one day at a time. The headaches are not as bad so I am thinking that the headaches are from something else. I am under lot of stress these days. Thanks for the prayers you wonderful ladies have sent sent my way! God Bless!
