This is Dr. David
I am a radiation oncology cancer doctor.
scar tissue in the chest can be very difficult to treat after surgery and radiation .
if you have a tight feeling in the chest, you need to see your doctor about this.
one area that scar tissue can form is around the eosophagus and cause esophageal stricture. this can be treated with upper endoscopy scope procedures and esophageal dilation to open up a larger path in the esophagus.
this would be the easier place for radiation and surgery scar tissue to treated.
you will not die from your scar tissue
laprosopic surgery and cutting out scar tissue is really no a good idea in the chest area.
you need to be checked for acid reflux and asthma which can cause tight feelings in your chest
if you have excessive anxiety, this can cause tight feelings in your chest as well and this would be treated with anxiety medications.
do you have excessive anxiety or difficulty swallowing?
let me know if you have other questions.
