Surviving Esophageal Cancer
December 18, 2019
The sixth leading cause of cancer death in the world is also one of its least talked about forms. Esophageal cancer primarily affects middle-aged men, and numbers are climbing in the United States.
Today we hear one survivor’s story. And we talk to an oncologist about lifestyle risk factors, how to recognize symptoms of the disease, and what treatment is available.
