What is Esophageal Cancer?
Esophageal cancer is cancer that forms in tissues lining the esophagus (the muscular tube through which food passes from the throat to the stomach). The wall of the esophagus has several layers. Esophageal cancer starts from the inner layer and grows outward. One type of esophageal cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, begins in cells lining the length of the esophagus. Another type, adenocarcinoma, begins in cells near the opening of the stomach that make and release mucus and other fluids.
