Learn About EsophagealCancer

Esophageal cancer is the 5th most common cancer worldwide

Esophageal cancer, also called gastric cancer, begins when cells in the stomach start to grow out of control. Stomach cancers tend to develop slowly over many years. Before cancer develops, pre-cancerous changes often occur in the inner lining of the stomach. These early changes rarely cause symptoms, so they often go undetected.

According to the American Cancer Society, esophageal cancer primarily affects older individuals, with the average age of diagnosis around 68 years. Men have a higher lifetime risk of developing esophageal cancer (about 1 in 127) compared to women (about 1 in 434).

Radiation therapy can be used in different ways to help treat esophageal cancer. For some earlier-stage cancers, radiation can be used before surgery to try to shrink the cancer and make it easier to remove. After surgery, radiation therapy can be used to try to kill any cancer cells that weren't removed during the surgery. For cancers that can't be removed by surgery, radiation therapy can sometimes be used to help slow the growth of the cancer and ease symptoms, such as pain, bleeding, or eating problems.
