Esophageal cancer treatment – Introduction

The tube that attaches the throat to the stomach is known as the esophagus. This 10-inch long muscular tube is a part of the digestive tract from where the food travels from the esophagus to the stomach.
Esophageal cancer attacks the esophagus, the long tube connecting the throat to the stomach. Its function is to carry food to the stomach for digestion once swallowed. Cancer typically first forms in the cellular lining of the inside of the esophagus, particularly in the lower levels of the esophagus closer to the stomach.

There are multiple types of esophageal cancer, but two are most prevalent.
Adenocarcinoma originates in cells of gland that secrete mucus, typically in the lower portion of the esophagus.
Squamous cell carcinoma typically originates in the middle portion of the esophagus in the squamous cells, which are thin, flat cells lining the surface of the esophagus. Squamous cell carcinoma begins in the squamous cells lining the esophagus. This type of esophageal cancer typically occurs in the middle and upper part of the esophagus.

Oncologists at Fuda see several thousand patient who have esophageal cancer each year. That experience helps them to guide patients toward the most appropriate esophageal cancer treatment approach. We take great care to ensure patients understand the benefits and risks associated with each treatment option.
The best cancer care begins with a comprehensive evaluation. At Fuda, the first step in evaluating esophageal cancer is usually an endoscopic examination of the esophagus (esophagoscopy). During this procedure, oncologist guides a thin, lighted tube called an endoscope down the esophagus and into your stomach. The endoscope provides a clear view of the esophagus and allows the oncologist to remove a small sample of tissue (biopsy), which is sent to a pathologist for further study.
There are a number of esophageal cancer treatment options available for esophageal cancer that depends on some factors such as general health of patient, stage of the cancer and the specific site of the primary tumor in the esophagus.
Following are some of the esophageal cancer treatment options

Radiotherapy: High-energy radiation beams are targeted on the cancerous tissue in order to destroy it. Radiotherapy is usually used in addition with either chemotherapy or surgery.

Surgery: The surgical procedure for removing the entire or a part of the esophagus depends on the location and size of the tumor. There are a number of surgical procedures for reaching to the esophagus. The surgical procedure can remove nearby soft tissues, a section of the esophagus and the lymph nodes. The entire or a part of the stomach can also be removed. The cancer is removed by making several incisions in the abdomen and chest. In majority of cases, the stomach is pulled up and is then joined with the remaining portion of the esophagus. Also, a part of the intestine is used for connecting the stomach with the esophagus remaining part. A part of large intestine or small intestine may also be used. A part of the intestine is used when the stomach is removed for joining it with the left over part of the esophagus to the small intestine.

Chemotherapy: People with esophageal cancer can also be treated with the help of chemotherapy. This therapy makes use of certain drugs that helps in destroying the cancer cells. The injection of these drugs is done into a vein (intravenous) that then travels throughout the different parts of the body.
