welcome to health care magic
Sorry for hearing this..
You didn't mention about the stage of oesophageal cancer..
In the early stages only surgery,or chemotherapy and radiotherapy are beneficial..
But in advanced stages only palliative treatment is available..
This is directed to have better life and to relieve does not remove cancer from the body..
Consult any gastro-enterologist and discuss about the palliative treatment available.
Hope you understood
Thank you
