Default fetid breath

A 46-year-old female presents at your clinic, complaining that her breath has become fetid during the past several weeks. She denies recent fevers, but she does report long-standing difficulty with swallowing food. If she has an esophageal diverticulum, where would you expect it to be located?
A. At the level of the diaphragmatic crus
B. Proximal to the cricopharyngeus muscle
C. Proximal to the cricothyroid membrane
D. Distal to the cricothyroid membrane
E. Distal to the lower esophageal sphincter
