Surviving Esophageal Cancer (Repeat)
January 27, 2020
The sixth leading cause of cancer death in the world is also one of the least talked about. Esophageal cancer - specifically adenocarcinoma - primarily affects middle-aged men, and here in the US, those numbers are climbing.
Today on All IN, we hear one survivor’s journey to becoming declared cured. And we also talk to an oncologist about lifestyle risk factors, how to recognize symptoms of the disease, and what treatment is available.
