Esophagus

NC Esophagus Cancer Treatment

The esophagus is the tube that transports food from the throat to the stomach. Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order. Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor. Esophageal cancer is the growth of cancer cells the esophagus.

There are two main types of esophageal cancer:

  • Squamous cell cancerarises from the cells that line the upper part of the esophagus
  • Adenocarcinomaarises from glandular cells that are present at the junction of the esophagus and stomach
