Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus

Excisional Biopsy of the Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus

Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus is an Esophageal Cancer affecting the cells that line the upper part of the esophagus. Along with Adenocarcinoma (which affects the junction between the esophagus and stomach), Squamous Cell Carcinoma is the most common malignancy of the esophagus. Gullet – as Esophagus is sometimes called is the tube through which food and drinks are passed to the stomach. If the tumor arises from the cells of upper Esophagus, it often results in difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) or may turn swallowing painful.

Number of environmental factors have been linked to the development of esophageal dysplasia and squamous carcinoma. Alcohol and tobacco smoking seem to be a #1 contributor in the USA, Canada and Western Europe, whereas people in the developing countries, including China tend to get it from consumption of foods containing nitrosamine. Essential vitamin and mineral deficiency also aid in development of the Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus.

  1. people that are over weight, have GERD, as Trauma mentioned above,or suffer from a hiatal hernia can get a condition called Barrett’s Esophagus. The stomach acid washes up on the distal end of the esophagus, and erodes the tissue. Upon esophagoscopy, the tissue looks salmon-colored instead of pink. Get it checked out like he mentioned.

  2. not so much of the erosion actually but rather what comes after. The esophagus isn’t supposed to come in contact with acid and it isn’t equipped to do so. So, it changes tissue type, we call this metaplasia. That isn’t much of a problem until one cell in a million gets a wrong signal and changes, this is now dysplasia. The cell becomes rogue and doesn’t know what to do, with more luck, or bad luck, it changes again and destroys its limiters making the cell immortal. this is now cancer.

    You can’t really tell if it’s cancer or just irritation initially without a biopsy. Routine screening isn’t cost effective. Lesson is, if you suffer from reflux, get it checked out.
