Hello, my name is*****
With a family history of esophageal cancer I would pursue consultation with a gastroenterologist ASAP for an endoscopy.
You can control your symptoms with something stronger such was Prilosec 20mg daily but the endoscopy is necessary in order to rule out anything potentially more serious. The GI doctor can do a biopsy to determine if there is cancer or bacteria such as H Pylori which needs other treatment.
