Chemotherapy and radiotherapy[ edit ] Chemotherapy depends on the tumor type, but tends to be cisplatin -based or carboplatin or oxaliplatin every three weeks with fluorouracil 5-FU either continuously or every three weeks. Rare histologic types of esophageal cancer include different variants of squamous-cell carcinoma, and non-epithelial tumors, such as leiomyosarcoma , malignant melanoma , rhabdomyosarcoma and lymphoma , among others. This might be the result of long-term damage to the cells lining the esophagus from the hot liquids. This is in part explained by the fact that people who are obese are more likely to have gastroesophageal reflux. Additional testing is needed to assess how much the cancer has spread see Staging , below. The thoracoabdominal approach opens the abdominal and thoracic cavities together, the two-stage Ivor Lewis also called Lewis—Tanner approach involves an initial laparotomy and construction of a gastric tube , followed by a right thoracotomy to excise the tumor and create an esophagogastric anastomosis.
People with these strictures have an increased risk of squamous cell esophageal cancer, which often occurs many years even decades later. People with GERD have a slightly higher risk of getting adenocarcinoma of the esophagus. Biopsies taken of suspicious lesions are then examined histologically for signs of malignancy. People with this condition also develop small growths papillomas in the esophagus and have a very high risk of getting squamous cell cancer of the esophagus. The thoracoabdominal approach opens the abdominal and thoracic cavities together, the two-stage Ivor Lewis also called Lewis—Tanner approach involves an initial laparotomy and construction of a gastric tube , followed by a right thoracotomy to excise the tumor and create an esophagogastric anastomosis. The three-stage McKeown approach adds a third incision in the neck to complete the cervical anastomosis. This is typically done if the cancer cannot be removed by surgery. Workplace exposures Exposure to chemical fumes in certain workplaces may lead to an increased risk of esophageal cancer. In many people, reflux causes symptoms such as heartburn or pain that seem to come from the middle of the chest. Photodynamic therapy , a type of laser therapy, involves the use of drugs that are absorbed by cancer cells; when exposed to a special light, the drugs become active and destroy the cancer cells. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy[ edit ] Chemotherapy depends on the tumor type, but tends to be cisplatin -based or carboplatin or oxaliplatin every three weeks with fluorouracil 5-FU either continuously or every three weeks. This causes the squamous cells that normally line the esophagus to be replaced with gland cells. About 1 in 10 people with this syndrome eventually develop squamous cell cancer of the esophagus or cancer in the lower part of the throat hypopharynx. Drinking alcohol also increases the risk of esophageal cancer. Age The chance of getting esophageal cancer increases with age. Dysplasia is graded by how abnormal the cells look under the microscope. Some are more likely to increase the risk for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and others for squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. On average, the cancers are found about 15 to 20 years after the achalasia began. Clear evidence from clinical trials for which approaches give the best outcomes in different circumstances is lacking. Often this requires regular monitoring with an upper endoscopy described in Tests for Esophagus cancer. Factors that influence treatment decisions include the stage and cellular type of cancer EAC, ESCC, and other types , along with the person's general condition and any other diseases that are present. Most esophageal webs do not cause any problems, but larger ones can cause food to get stuck in the esophagus, which can lead to problems swallowing and chronic irritation in that area from the trapped food. Radiotherapy is given before, during, or after chemotherapy or surgery, and sometimes on its own to control symptoms. This can result in dysplasia, a pre-cancerous condition. But having a risk factor, or even many, does not mean that you will get esophageal cancer. Laser therapy is the use of high-intensity light to destroy tumor cells while affecting only the treated area.
