The global esophageal cancer
market has been segmented based on type, phase, and treatment.
Lymph node metastasis is the most common route of metastasis of esophageal cancer
, of which squamous carcinoma accounts for 95%, with the main site of occurrence in the thoracic esophagus.10 Therefore, this study retrospectively analyzed the lymph node metastasis pattern and the impact of clinical pathological factors on lymphatic metastasis in 1034 cases of ESCC patients undergoing surgery, which has important guiding significance for the development of a reasonable radiation field.
Effective palliation for inoperable esophageal cancer
using intensive intracavitary radiation.
Referring to T2-weighted imaging and contrast-enhanced T1-weight-ed imaging, all regions of interest (ROIs) of esophageal cancer
were manually set, encompassing the entire tumor area but excluding necrosis, peripheral fat, and blood vessels.
Although several histological subtypes of esophageal cancer
have been described to date, esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), arising from squamous epithelial cells, and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC), arising from glandular epithelial cells, are the most common, together representing more than 90% of all esophageal cancer

Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), a transmembrane receptor kinase, is frequently overexpressed in various types of human cancers, including esophageal cancer
Due to the tumor-related dysphagia, vomiting, reduced oral intake, and altered nutrient metabolism associated with systemic inflammation, weight loss is also a common presenting symptom of esophageal cancer
A 41-year-old woman, gravida 2, para 1, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer
relapse at 16 weeks of gestation.
About 24% of patients with esophageal cancer
are complicated with depression.[sup] Previous studies showed that patients with depression have impairment of theory of mind (ToM) abilities.
is on the rise in the U.S.--according to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 17,000 new cases were diagnosed in 2016.
Further, the risk of this type of esophageal cancer
is lower than previously believed after that first year, according to a study of 7,932 Swedish residents who were diagnosed with BE from 2006 to 2013.
