Should I get my stomach checked out I've been swallowing some smoke for a few months smoking weed (accidently ) I now have acid reflux do I havecancer?

A young person (with a brain, neurotransmitters, and receptors still maturing), especially if there is any family history of any mental issues, should definitely stay away from weed. ...Read more

You : You should seek an evaluation from an ENT physician who can diagnose and manage your problem. Both smoking and reflux take a toll on the upper airway causing damage to the structure around the vocal cords. Of more concern is the possibility of a benign or malignant growth in the region. The ENT can use a television probe to visual the area and perform a biopsy if required. ...Read more
