esophageal bump?

33 y/o male, ex-smoker and ex-heavy drinker.  Had an endoscopy the other day.  Doctor's initial findings were an "esophageal bump" ~2mm in size.  Upon talking with him, he said he wasn't overly concerned and that it didn't look like a tumor.  I am currently awaiting biopsy results (2 weeks), and am going nuts.  How common are these benign esophageal bumps?

generally at the time of the biopsy they look at the tissue and do a preliminary dx and generally know that it looks cancerous. I would assume after 2wks it must be negative cause usually they will fu within 72hrs if cancerous. But you need to call and request your results, no one should have to wait as long as you have. God bless and keep healthy
