esophageal cancer.

A growing cancer, by the time esophageal cancer is detected, it has already spread and it basically becomes inoperable. It could be lurking in your throat… If your throat has been bugging you, go to a doctor if you feel something isn’t right. Also, here are the three big risk factors:

1. Eating a high-acid diet (caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, breath mints, raw tomato and raw garlic)
2. Cigarette smoking (the nicotine loosens the muscle that keeps the esophagus attached to the stomach)
3. Barrett’s esophagus (caused by longtime acid reflux)

Solutions for this type of cancer: wait three hours to go to sleep after dinner, treat heartburn with acid blockers, and get a nasal esophagoscopy (colonoscopy for the throat).
