MalaCards based summary: Esophageal Cancer, also known as esophageal carcinoma, is related to gastric cancer and lung cancer, and has symptoms including weight loss, feeding difficulties in infancy and esophageal neoplasm. An important gene associated with Esophageal Cancer is TGFBR2 (Transforming Growth Factor Beta Receptor 2), and among its related pathways are Colorectal Cancer Metastasis and Endometrial cancer. The drugs cisplatin and methotrexate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, lymph node and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and pigmentation.
Disease Ontology:11 A esophageal cancer that has material basis in abnormally proliferating cells derives from epithelial cells.
NIH Rare Diseases:46 Esophageal cancer is a cancer of the esophagus, the hollow tube that carries food and liquids from the throat to the stomach. as the cancer grows, symptoms may include painful or difficult swallowing, weight loss and coughing up blood. the exact cause is usually not known, but both environmental and genetic factors are throught to play a role in the development of this condition. in the united states, risk factors for developing esophageal cancer include smoking, heavy drinking, obesity, and damage from acid reflux. treatments include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and laser therapy. some patients may also need nutritional support, since the cancer or treatment may make it hard to swallow. last updated: 1/12/2012
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:68 Esophageal cancer: A malignancy of the esophagus. The most common types are esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma. Cancer of the esophagus remains a devastating disease because it is usually not detected until it has progressed to an advanced incurable stage.
MedlinePlus:36 The esophagus is a hollow tube that carries food and liquids from your throat to your stomach. early esophageal cancer usually does not cause symptoms. later, you may have symptoms such as painful or difficult swallowing weight loss a hoarse voice or cough that doesn't go away you're at greater risk for getting esophageal cancer if you smoke, drink heavily, or have acid reflux. your risk also goes up as you age your doctor uses imaging tests and a biopsy to diagnose esophageal cancer. treatments include surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. you might also need nutritional support, since the cancer or treatment may make it hard to swallow. nih: national cancer institute
