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.

Treatment Of Oesophageal Cancer

Treatment of the esophagus is critical as the structure plays a very vital function in the body and it is closely surrounded by various other important structures.

Food During Oesophageal Cancer Treatment

Like in the case of stomach cancer, food intake gets highly compromised in the case of esophageal cancer and the patient loses weight significantly.

He is starved badly and sometimes it is difficult for an Esophageal Cancer Doctor to recommend any treatment as the patient does not remain in a position and capacity to take it comfortably.
