I forgot to mention that this is something that comes and goes, She has no weight
loss, or fever. She also gets nausea from this.
Dear Lynn, the sympotom that you describe is very nonspecific and often is not a sign of cancer. Esophgitis, gastritis, esophageal dysmotility can all explain these pains. It is necessary, however, for your mother to see a physician for evaluation.
