Cancer that develops in the esophagus, a long, hollow tube that connects your throat to your stomach, is commonly referred to as Food Pipe cancer. The food you swallow is moved from the back of your throat to your stomach via your esophagus, where it is broken down for digestion.

  • Dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing
  • Loss of weight without trying
  • Burning or pressure in the chest.
  • Worsening heartburn or dyspepsia.
  • Hoarseness or coughing.

Tests needed before Food Pipe Cancer Treatment / Diagnosis

Food Pipe cancer diagnosis usually requires an endoscopy along with a biopsy. During an endoscopy, a thin, flexible tube is inserted via the mouth into the esophagus to view it from the inside. A biopsy is examining a tiny sample of cancerous tissue under a microscope.

A biopsy of the esophagus is safe and does not spread cancer.

In addition to biopsy, the following are typically required:

  • Blood tests.
  • CT or PET-CT scans to determine the severity of the illness.
  • Additional tests if needed by the oncologist.

  • Stage 3: Spread to surrounding organs or larger lymph nodes.
  • Stage 4: Distant organs such as the liver, lungs, bone, brain, etc. are affected.
