Diagnostic aspects of the oesophageal cervical cancer


Oesophageal cancer is the fourth most frequent cancer of the digestive tube, following gastric, \ colon and rectal cancer. The oesophageal cervical cancer has a growing incidence, and in 3-5% of cases it is associated with another cancer which is part of Ears-Nose-Throat (ENT) medicine. Generally, oesophageal cancer has a reserved prognosis. The cancer of the superior part of the oesophagus has a bad prognosis due to a late diagnosis. Therefore, an early, correct and complete diagnosis might improve its generally reserved prognosis.
Keywords: cervical oesophagus, malignant tumors, early diagnosis.
