Esophageal Cancer is a cancer that forms in the lining of the esophagus. Esophageal Cancer is diagnosed with a biopsy of the tissues of the esophagus. Patient prognosis of Esophageal Cancer depends on the extent of the tumor and other medical problems. Small, localized esophageal tumors can often be removed surgically. Larger tumors that have spread may not be operable and or cured. In some cases, the growth of larger tumors can be delayed with chemotherapy and radiotherapy. However, Esophageal Cancer is rarely diagnosed in its early stages and often the cancer spreads to nearby lymph nodes or to other parts of the body and can be fatal.  Symptoms of Esophageal Cancer include:

  • Difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or painful swallowing (odynophagia)
  • Unintentional weight loss
  • Unusual husky or raspy voice
  • Regurgitation of food
  • Vomiting up blood
  • Pain in the throat, midchest, or between the shoulder blades

You should contact a doctor immediately if you are experiencing any of these Esophageal Cancer symptoms.
