Adenocarcinomas is the most common type of esophageal cancer. This type of cancer forms in glandular cells in the lining of the esophagus that release mucus. It typically develops in the lower part of the esophagus, closer to the stomach.

Squamous cell carcinoma develops in the flat cells that line the esophagus. This type of esophageal cancer is typically found in the upper and middle parts of the esophagus.
