Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
She may need a Endsocpoy to do a biopsy
of the growth to rule out the type of cancer. Because there are two main types of esophageal cancer which exist, squamous cell carcinoma
and adenocarcinoma. When the cancer is only in the esophagus
and has not spread, surgery is the treatment of choice. The goal of surgery is to remove the cancer. Sometimes chemotherapy
, or a combination of the two may be used instead of surgery, or to make the growth smaller so that surgery is easier to perform. If she cannot tolerate surgery or the cancer has spread to other organs, chemotherapy or radiation may be used to help reduce symptoms. This is called palliative therapy. In such cases, the disease is usually not curable. Speak to her Doctor about all these aspects and Discuss it with your Family and friends to come to a Final conclusion.
