Oesophageal cancer is the cancer of the food pipe (oesophagus) that arises when normal oesophagus cells start growing abnormally (uncontrolled manner) due to various reasons.
The oesophagus (food pipe) is an important part of the digestive system that carries food from mouth to stomach.
Situated behind the windpipe and in front of the spine, the oesophagus plays a vital role in digestion.
