Esophageal cancer diagnosis is usually confirmed by a biopsy, in which a small piece of tissue is taken to identify if those cells are cancerous. But before that, upon examining a patient, the doctor may ask about patients’ history and learn about the symptoms.

Based on the complexity of symptoms, an individual may be referred to a specialist.
