Hi @dociemae,
A stage 1 esophageal cancer tumor is small (7 cm or less across) and limited to the esophagus.

Have you recently been diagnosed with esophageal cancer? How are you doing?

REPLY

Diagnosed with esophageal cancer in April. Have undergone around ten rounds of chemo at Northwestern, and the tumors have decreased. Coming to Mayo next month for a second opinion and hoping for clinical trials or alternative treatments. All in all, things are going well. Blessed to have a supporting wife and family and friends to help me through this. Am able to eat full meals, no problems with the digestive system, and walking at least three miles per day. Best of luck to all involved in this group.
