If screening tests or check-ups reveal abnormal results, your WellStar physician will perform further evaluations regarding esophageal cancer as well as determine the extent to which it has spread.
Esophageal Cancer Stages
When esophageal cancer is diagnosed, your WellStar physician will categorize it by the current stage. Each stage describes the progression of the disease and whether the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. You should talk to your WellStar physician to understand each stage, and what it means for your treatment plan.
