About Esophageal Cancer

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and adenocarcinoma account for over 95 percent of esophageal malignant tumors. For most of the 20th century, SCC has predominated. In the 1960s, SCC accounted for more than 90 percent of all esophageal tumors in the United States, and adenocarcinomas were considered so uncommon that some authorities questioned their existence.

However, over time, the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma (predominantly arising in the distal esophagus and esophagogastric junction) has increased dramatically in Western countries such that adenocarcinoma now accounts for over 60 percent of all esophageal cancers in the United States.

Patients with advanced thoracic or cervical esophageal carcinoma usually present with progressive dysphagia and weight loss. Early intramucosal adenocarcinomas of the distal esophagus that are recognized at endoscopy in an area of Barrett’s esophagus are not specifically symptomatic.


Early on, people might not notice any symptoms. They might find out they have esophageal cancer after a test for another condition. When people have symptoms from esophageal cancer, they might have:

  • Trouble swallowing, especially solid, dry foods – this gets worse over time.
  • Weight loss
  • Pain or a burning feeling in the chest
  • A hoarse voice

All these symptoms can also be caused by conditions that are not cancer. But if you have these symptoms, tell a doctor or nurse.


The evaluation may include contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) of the neck, chest, and abdomen, whole-body integrated fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT, EUS, and/or diagnostic laparoscopy.


  • Surgery – Esophageal cancer can be treated with surgery to remove the cancer. If your doctor needs to remove part of your esophagus during surgery, he or she will reconnect your esophagus and stomach so that you can swallow food.
  • Radiation therapy – Radiation kills cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy is the medical term for medicines that kill cancer cells or stop them from growing.
  • Immunotherapy – This is the term doctors use for medicines that work with the body’s infection-fighting system (the “immune system”) to stop cancer growth.

Alternative medicine for Esophagus Cancer


The goal of cancer immunotherapy is to improve the body natural ability to find and destroy cancer cells. Successful immunotherapeutic approaches stimulate the natural defenses of the immune system and provide new ways to attack cancer. This is possible with comprehensive interventions that include cell therapy / immuno-pharmacological therapy in combination with nutritional, endocrine measures and supplements.

Cancer vaccines deliver a cancer-specific protein to the body and direct the immune system to target cells that contain that protein. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T-cell immunotherapy involves taking the patient’s T cells, genetically engineering the T cells to produce receptors that direct them to the cancer cells, and returning these CAR T cells to the patient’s body (NCI 2017b).

Dendritic enhancer or T-cell modulators

T-cell Modulators are peptide chains composed of tens of amino acids that appear to store all the experience of the immune system. The great intellectual leap to understand is that T-cell Modulators do not transfer antibodies nor create them directly, but its function is to educate, and teach the immune cells to recognize specific antigens that could happen to them unnoticed T-cell

Modulators do not cure anything but work to make a “smarter” immune system so that it is the body itself eliminating disease. They are therefore vital in developing the strategies of the immune system against cancer.

T-cell Modulators contains several immunoactive components that have been shown to act synergistically in raising Dendritic and NK function.


Hyperthermia involves the use of heat to directly treat a tumor or increase the vulnerability of cancer cells to other forms of treatment, such as immunotherapy, vitamin C, chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Non-ablative or mild hyperthermia (HT) has been shown in preclinical and clinical studies as a localized sensitizer that enhances the tumoricidal effects of immunetherapy, radiation or chemotherapy. A novel, minimally invasive interventional technique, HT has been suggested to improve the efficacy of chemotherapy for solid organ tumors.

Liposomal Mistletoe Mistletoe

helps fight tumor-induced immune suppression. Natural killer cells (NK) are a type of white blood cell that looks for and destroys cancer cells. Mistletoe has been called a biological response modifier due to its ability to improve various aspects of immune function. Studies show that it activates natural killer cells, T cells, macrophages and monocytes.


Glutathione is the most important antioxidant produced by your body and a master detoxifier of every cell in your body. It prevents cellular damage caused by free radicals and peroxides. Glutathione metabolism is able to play both protective and pathogenic roles. It is crucial in the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, and alterations in this pathway can have a profound effect on cell survival. Inhibition of glutathione metabolism attenuates esophageal cancer progression.
