WHAT IS ESOPHAGAAL CANCER?

Esophageal cancer is a disease caused by tumors that grow in the esophagus between the mouth and stomach.

The cancer is most common in people between the ages of 60 and 70 and affects more men than women.

It can be difficult to spot because it causes no symptoms early on and isn’t noticed until the tumor has grown.

And the first symptoms are often mistaken for common and benign problems.

Signs of the disease include difficulty swallowing, persistent indigestion or heartburn, loss of appetite, weight loss, and pain in the trunk, chest, or back.

According to Cancer Research UK, six in ten patients die within a year of diagnosis.

Only 12 percent of people survive 10 years after a diagnosis.

The exact cause of the disease is not well known, but it is believed that smoking, drinking too much alcohol, being overweight or having an unhealthy diet increase a person’s risk of getting it.
