of the tumor continues to increase in the esophagus and thicken its lining. Most of the times, symptoms of
esophageal cancer emerge when the cancer is fairly advanced. Esophageal cancer is often diagnosed late; that's

- loss of
of discomfort or illness
associated with heartburn
- pain in
the throat, chest or back.
