Two types of esophageal cancer are squamous cell carcinoma (cancer that begins in flat cells lining the esophagus) and adenocarcinoma (cancer that begins in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). Esophageal cancer has been categorized into two types that include – Adenocarcinoma :This type of esophageal cancer starts in the glandular tissue in the lower part of the esophagus. Squamous Cell Carcinoma : Squamous cell carcinoma begins in the squamous cells lining the esophagus.

Internal Radiotherapy :A small radioactive implant is placed close to the cancerous tumor for removing and destroying it. External Radiotherapy : This therapy makes use of machine that is placed outside the body. Surgery :The surgical procedure for removing the entire or a part of the esophagus depends on the location and size of the tumor. Chemotherapy : People with esophageal cancer can also be treated with the help of chemotherapy. Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) :In this outpatient procedure, controlled bursts of radiofrequency energy burn away thin layers of abnormal tissue on the surface of the esophagus, leaving healthy tissue intact.

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.

Most advanced CT technology, which is faster, more sensitive and uses less radiation than do older CT scans. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan :The first step in staging esophageal cancer is usually a CT scan, a type of X-ray that produces images of the body in cross sections rather than in the overlapping images produced by conventional X-rays. Most advanced CT technology, which is faster, more sensitive and uses less radiation than do older CT scans. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) :During endoscopic ultrasound, a tiny ultrasound probe is placed into the esophagus through an endoscope. The probe produces sound waves that penetrate deep into tissue, detecting how far a tumor may have spread into the esophagus wall. EUS can be technically demanding, and produces the best results when performed by an experienced endoscopist.
