The prevalence of oesophageal cancer associated with parasitosis.
Due to its incredibly aggressive nature and low survival rate, oesophageal cancer is one of the least understood and deadly tumours in the world. In terms of overall cancer mortality, it comes in sixth. An increased risk of oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma has been linked in retrospective investigations of EsC to smoking, hot tea drinking, red meat consumption, poor oral health, limited intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, and low socioeconomic position. In clinical practise, dysplasia continues to be the only criteria relevant for identifying patients at elevated risk for the development of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, despite the fact that Barrett's oesophagus is clearly recognised as a risk factor for EsC. In this study, we looked into the epidemiologic trends and root causes of EsC. We produced the most recent stage distribution and 5-year relative survival by stage at diagnosis for 1998-2009 using population-based cancer data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Program of the United States. The fact that oesophageal cancer, specifically adenocarcinoma, is one of the relatively few cancers that is causing an increase in the mortality rate of men in the United States deserves special attention. It is hoped that additional research into the EsC's mechanism of development would reduce its prevalence and enhance outcomesAuthor(s): Farin Zhang*
