1 doctor agrees

In brief: Completely unrelated

There is negligible likelihood of any causative relationship between an endoscopic exam of her esophagus 2-3 years ago and a localizing process involving her left breast now.
Instead, please address whether she is up-to-date with mammograms, dermatology survey, and/or routine physical exam. Encourage her not to delay longer in getting evaluated by her primary care physician and/or gynecologist.
