In brief: Need endoscopy

If you are having problems swallowing several issues may be the cause.
Stricture, ulcers, esophagitis, reflux and possibly cancer. The best way to see what may be going on is by upper endoscopy.

In brief: Let's check

Dysphagia: word used to describe the sensation of food getting stuck in esophagus.
See your doctor, he can order a barium swallow to evaluate for any obstruction by mass, stricture or external compression. Other choice is an upper endoscopy which allows direct visualization and can detect same findings plus exclude an infection as well as take samples and if necessary therapy.
