Esophageal cancer is a malignant tumor that forms from the overgrown and degenerated epithelium of the esophagus wall. Clinically, cancer of the esophagus is manifested by progressive swallowing disorders and, as a result, a decrease in body weight as a result of malnutrition. Initially, as a rule, a tumor formation is detected during radiography, endoscopic examination, CT or ultrasound. The diagnosis of cancer of the esophagus is established after a histological examination of the neoplasm biopsy for the detection of malignant cells.
