Many of you also must be wondering what is Esophageal Cancer so I am going to cover a bit on this as well.
Esophageal Cancer is basically the cancer that forges in human tissues that line the esophagus. Esophagus is the tube from which your food goes into your stomach.

First means cancer that begins in flat cells inside the esophagusÂ and second means cancer that forms in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids.
So you can imagine how critically you get effected if you get this cancer.
