Thymolipoma and swallowing problem

For the past 10 years I had difficulty swallowing to a point I could not swallow annything. Motality tests showed less than 40% ability to swallo.w. Docter injected Botox in oesophagus and swallowing now beter but other my symptoms are getting much worse. These include constant chestpain, fever (39¤), dizziness, fatigue, water retention. CT scan showed a "small thymolipoma" which does not seem to worry my docter? Do you yhink this could be the caise of my symptoms? Thank you.

If you doctor says it’s a very small lump that’s not causing any problems, then I wouldn’t worry.  Many of these kinds of lesions are innocently sitting there not causing any problems.  It is likely that your symptoms, especially the water retention, are due to other things.  Things that come to mind include a weak hear, kidney problems, liver problems, and problems with the valves in the legs.  You need to see your doctor to clarify these issues.
