What Are the Symptoms of Esophageal Cancer?
Esophageal cancer can be very difficult to detect in its early stages. Many signs may appear to be common digestive problems, so it’s important to seek the advice of a physician if you have esophageal cancer symptoms that persist for several weeks.
One of the most common symptoms of esophageal cancer is difficulty swallowing, also known as dysphagia. Other common esophageal cancer symptoms may include:
- Reflux symptoms
- Abdominal pain
- Pain or burning in the throat or chest
- Unexplained weight loss
- Heartburn or indigestion
- Chronic hiccups
- Chronic cough
- Frequent choking while eating food
Note: These symptoms may be the result of a number of conditions other than cancer. It is important to consult with a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis.
