Hi garybob_63 and welcome to ehealth: This is a rare benigh tumor...It is in the esophagous...Few cases are reported on this problem and the jury is still out as to whether this can form into Esophageal cancer...It is a single, round formation that forms in this area...I wish I could tell you more on this, but this is all I know...Take care...
