Esophageal Tumors

wallowing difficulties and unexplained weight loss are signs of oesophageal (food pipe) illness. Esophagus can be affected with benign tumors like leiomyoma or cancers. Smokers, alcoholics, obese and those who consume very hot beverages are at an increased risk of developing precancerous alterations (Barrett’s esophagus) and esophageal malignancies.

Unfortunately, most oesophageal cancers are not detected and treated in time. Horizon offers superior endoscopic technology for detecting esophageal cancer in people who are at risk. Eg: Barrett’s esophagus.

State of the Art Screening & Diagnostic Facilities at Horizon:
Combined Treatment for Esophageal Cancer

Esophageal cancer treatment is not a one-size-fits-all method. Unless the cancer is in its early stages, most treatment options include preoperative (neoadjuvant) therapy, which includes a mix of radiation and chemotherapy with the goal of shrinking tumors and improving outcomes.

We perform the following esophagectomy procedures:

Palliative Care: When the food pipe is blocked by advanced cancer, patients cannot swallow the food. In such situations, Horizon Cancer Care provides them with an opportunity to maintain their dietary intake by placing a self-expanding metal stent (SEMS)
