Understanding Esophageal Cancer Treatment

Esophageal cancer is a serious condition that forms in the esophagus, the muscular tube that connects your throat to your stomach. It can develop anywhere along this tube, but most commonly occurs in the lower and middle sections.

What is Esophageal Cancer ?

Esophageal cancer is a malignant disease that affects the esophagus, the muscular tube connecting your throat to your stomach. It develops when healthy cells in the esophagus mutate and divide uncontrollably, forming a tumor.

There are several different types of Esophageal cancer, each with its own cause, symptoms, and treatment options. The most common types include:

  • Squamous cell carcinoma: This type starts in the flat, squamous cells lining the esophagus. It’s often linked to smoking and tobacco use.
  • Adenocarcinoma: This type starts in glandular cells, which are more common in the lower esophagus. It’s often associated with acid reflux and Barrett’s esophagus (a precancerous condition).
