30 Dec 2017 11:44

Hi about six weeks ago i had a biopsies on a small  nodule in my esophagus i was then told i had high grade dysplasia and the nodule would be removed by emr.i went yesterday to have this done and was told by this doctor that the biopsie showed i had a carcinoma.but then to make matters worse the nodule wasnt removed as 2 different doctors couldn't find it.i wasnt given any explanation for this and all they did was take more biopsies.has anyone ever heard of wondering why the first doctor told me i had high grade dysplasia and not carcinoma.the first doctor is now on annual worried sick over this.has anyone had this happen to them.
