Esophageal Cancer

Patients who come to the Siteman Cancer Center for treatment of esophageal cancer are seen by a team of Washington University Physicians— surgical, medical and radiation oncologists — often during the same visit.

Esophageal cancer starts in the lining of the esophagus, the hollow muscular tube that moves food and liquid from your mouth to your stomach.
