Esophageal Cancer Causes

You have esophageal cancer when certain normal cells of the esophagus, due a pathological factor, divide or multiply uncontrollably. Your immune system fights those cells to prevent the transformation. In case that your immune response is not healthy enough, the belligerent cells will continue to multiply to give rise to a malignant growth (cancer).

Some cancers are not original of the tissue of the esophagus; they are complications or metastasis of a cancer from another organ in your body that comes installed on the lining of the esophagus. The cancers most likely to spread into your esophagus include:

  • bone cancer
  • breast cancer
  • liver cancer
  • kidney cancer
  • skin cancer
  • laryngeal cancer
  • pharyngeal cancer
  • lung cancer
  • prostate cancer
  • testicular Cancer
