Unlikely but: Unlikely to be cancer but have your primary care physician examine you to make sure everything is ok. Your symptoms sound like acid reflux but, once again, talk to your pcp. Best wishes, ariel.

Gi issues: You are describing somewhat classic presentation of gastric reflux or acid reflux. At your age it is highly unlikely for u to develop a cancer that could cause these symptoms. The vastly more common causes would be related to acid reflux, stress, poor dental hygiene or other non malignant issues. Likely something that would be easy for your primary doctor to resolve for u.
