Esophagus cancer tumors, also known as esophageal carcinoma, refer to the abnormal growth of malignant cells in the esophagus, the muscular tube that connects the throat to the stomach. Esophageal cancer is often divided into two main types: adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Adenocarcinoma typically develops in the lower part of the esophagus and is often associated with chronic acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Squamous cell carcinoma, on the other hand, occurs in the upper and middle part of the esophagus and is often linked to tobacco and alcohol use. Symptoms of esophageal cancer may include difficulty swallowing, persistent indigestion or heartburn, chest pain, unintentional weight loss, and hoarseness.

Treatment Options:

  • Diagnosis and Staging:Accurate diagnosis and staging of esophageal cancer tumors are crucial for determining the most appropriate treatment plan. Diagnostic methods such as endoscopy, biopsy, imaging tests (CT scan, PET scan), and staging procedures help evaluate the extent of cancer and guide treatment decisions.
  • Treatment Options:At Heal Onco Care, we offer a comprehensive range of treatment options for esophageal cancer tumors. The treatment approach depends on factors such as cancer stage, tumor location, and the patient's overall health. Treatment modalities may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy.

Non Cancerous Esophagus (Food-Pipe) Conditions:

Non-cancerous conditions of the esophagus refer to a variety of disorders that affect the structure and function of the esophagus, the muscular tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. These conditions can cause symptoms such as difficulty swallowing (dysphagia), heartburn, regurgitation, chest pain, and chronic acid reflux. While they are not cancerous, they can significantly impact your daily life and require medical attention.
