Learn the facts about esophageal cancer

-Esophageal cancer has increased over 600% and is considered the fastest growing cancer in the US.

-Risk factors include: Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD, acid reflux, chronic heartburn), obesity, poor nutrition, tobacco use, excessive alcohol use, Barrett’s esophagus.

-As one of the deadliest cancers, esophageal cancer has an overall 5 year survival rate of only 18.4%.

-There are no routine or standard screenings to improve early detection of esophageal cancer.

-Symptoms often arise late, once the cancer is considered advanced or “distant” (spread to lymph nodes and other organs.)

-Stage IV esophageal cancer has a survival rate of only 4.5%.

-Despite all of these facts, esophageal cancer research is extremely underfunded.
