Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal Cancer

  • The Esophagus is the narrow tube responsible of moving food and fluid from the throat to the stomach. Esophageal Cancer happens when a harmful tumor shapes in the coating of the throat
  • The cancer begins at the internal layer of the throat and can spread all through alternate layers of the throat and to different parts of the body (metastasis)
  • The two primary sub-kinds of the sickness are Esophageal Squamous-Cell Carcinoma and Esophageal Adenocarcinoma (EAC)
  • Squamous-Cell Carcinoma emerges from the epithelial cells that line the throat. This sort of tumor can happen anyplace along the throat
  • Adenocarcinoma is cancer that develops from organ cells. This regularly happens in the lower throat close to the stomach and is believed to be largely related to acid exposure to the lower esophagus
