Nelson, 41, Canada : "My name is Nelson. I’m a smoker. One day I’ll smoke 2-3 boxes of cigarette. I still can’t get rid of my smoking habit since I had finish school. In the month of May 2011, I had problem with my esophagus. I always cough, hard to swallow foods, and sometimes I’ll vomiting blood.

I went to a clinic and found that I was suffering from esophageal cancer. I was very shocked with the doctor’s words. I almost gave up on my life because all people know that cancer cannot be cured. I felt like I’ve no longer hope to survive until I met a very famous Chinese Master known as THE TOLE. I started to know about the Chinese Master through television. He was practicing acupuncture treatment technique and also using herbal medicine.

After 5 months I obtain acupuncture treatment cure of esophagus cancer from THE TOLE Chinese Master, my health has improved a lot and I also quit smoking already! I felt very happy. Until this day, I still consume herbs from Chinese Master. This is because his herbs are very effective and high quality. All the herbal medicines are created by THE TOLE Chinese Master himself. "

Oesophagus Cancer

The oesophagus is the medical name for the gullet. It is part of the digestive system. The oesophagus is a long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. The top part of oesophagus lies behind the windpipe (trachea). The bottom part runs down through the chest between the spine and the heart.

The body is made up of millions of different types of cells. Cancer happens when some of the cells multiply in an abnormal way, causing a growth called a tumour to form. Tumours can be benign (not cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). They can occur in any part of the body where the cells multiply abnormally.

Cancer of the oesophagus is relatively rare in the UK, although it has become more common in the last 30 years. Currently, it accounts for approximately 3% of all cancer cases. Approximately 7,560 people are diagnosed with the condition each year. Men and people over the age of 55 are most commonly affected.

There are two main types of cancer of the oesophagus.

  • Squamous cell carcinoma - this cancer forms in the upper part of the oesophagus. It happens when cells on the inside lining of the oesophagus multiply abnormally.
  • Adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus - this cancer forms in the lower part of the oesophagus. It happens when cells inside the mucus glands that line the oesophagus multiply abnormally. (Mucous glands produce a slimy substance to help food slide down the oesophagus more easily)

What are the symptoms of oesophageal cancer?

Small tumours generally do not cause pain. When symptoms do occur, they usually include:

  • Difficulty in swallowing, first with solids and later with fluids.
  • Loss of appetite and associated weight loss.
  • Frequent sensation that food has become stuck between the middle chest and the stomach.
  • Vomiting blood.
  • Hoarseness.
  • Frequent hiccups.
  • Respiratory tract infections are common because of regurgitation of food into the respiratory tract (bronchi and lungs).
  • As the tumour worsens, liquids may become difficult to swallow.
  • Indigestion, heartburn, vomiting and frequent choking, as the tumour grows

Causes of oesophageal cancer

Each year, nearly 7600 people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus. It is becoming more common in Europe and North America. Men are affected more than women and it occurs generally in older people.

There are two types: squamous cell carcinoma and oesophageal cancer (which is known as adenocarcinoma). The causes are unknown, but cancer of the oesophagus would appear to be more common in people who have long-term acid reflux (backflow of stomach acid into the oesophagus). Damage to the oesophagus caused by acid reflux is known as Barrett's oesophagus.

Barrett’s oesophagus is a condition where abnormal cells develop in the lining of the lower end of the oesophagus. It is not a cancer, but over a long period of time a small number of people with this condition (around 1 in 100) may develop a cancer of the oesophagus.

Cancer of the oesophagus is more commonly seen in some populations in the Far East and Central Asia, which suggests that diet, or the environment, may affect its development. Squamous cell carcinoma is more common among smokers and people who drink a lot of alcohol (especially spirits) or have a poor diet.

Other conditions affecting the oesophagus, such as achalasia, may also very occasionally lead to cancer. Achalasia is where the muscle that controls the opening between the oesophagus and the stomach does not relax properly. This makes food build up in the oesophagus and stops it emptying into the stomach.

In most people, cancer of the oesophagus is not caused by an inherited faulty gene, and so other members of your family are not likely to be at risk of developing it. However, a very small number of people who have a rare inherited skin condition known as tylosis may develop oesophageal cancer.
