Over time, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, or GERD, can lead to Barrett’s esophagus, dysplasia or even esophagus cancer (adenocarcinoma.) This video shows how cancer may gradually invade the esophagus, other organs and lymph nodes, progressing from early-stage disease to locally advanced disease to late-stage disease. It also discusses tests to locate cancer in the body, including a CT scan, PET scan, PET/CT scan and endoscopic ultrasound, and methods of treating cancer. Mayo Clinic has a very large team with an international reputation for its skill in diagnosing and treating reflux, Barrett’s esophagus and esophagus cancer.

I was diagnosed with esophageal cancer last Christmas.I couldn't swallow anything,liquid or solid.The doctors placed a feeding tube in my stomach.I had to hook up to a feeding pump called a "joey" for 16 hours a day,I also had to use an oversized syringe to take in water as well.The next 5 weeks I had 23 radiation sessions and 5 chemo sessions, I was little by little able to eat again and even put on over 20 pounds.A month and a half after my last chemo treatment I had an esophagectomy I was released the next day.I'm still getting used to eating smaller portions and sleeping with my head elevated,but I'm resuming my activity level 3 months after my surgery.I hope my story helps anyone who is going through what I did.

When Mayo denies treatment where do you go, what do you do?

why don't they just say 'glucose' instead of 'substance'….. pet scans use glucose to detect cancer

I had an upper gi series and my esophagus showed some irritation. I was advised to take my Zantac 150mgs bid as ordered. I am a registered nurse and aware of how vital it is to get yourself checked out. Acid reflux is not to be taken lightly. I have had acid reflux for 20 plus years now.
