In this episode, expert oncology nurse Kristin Johnston discussed different topics on esophageal cancer. There are roughly 20,000 cases of esophageal cancer in the United States each year. Esophageal cancer starts when the cells in the lining of the esophagus begin to grow out of control. The esophagus is a hollow, muscular tube that connects the throat and stomach and carries food to the stomach. Esophageal cancer usually starts in the cells in the inner lining of the esophagus, and as it grows it spreads to the outer layers and beyond. There are nearly 500 clinical trials for esophageal cancer recruiting patients in the United States.  

Esophageal cancer topics covered during the event include: 

  • Signs & Symptoms 
  • Risk Factors 
  • Causes 
  • Common Treatments 
  • Clinical Trials 
  • New Therapies 
  • Q&A
