Hello, folks. My father has been an alcoholic for more than a decade. However, he was diagnosed esophageal cancer. I hear that this cancer is pretty serious. What are the chances for someone who has this type of cancer? I would appreciate if anyone knew to tell me this. Bye, folks!

Hello. I am afraid that prognosis of esophageal cancer is serious. Usually this disease is discovered when it is much spread. Less than 5% survive for more than 5 years. Many of people die within a year when first symptoms appear. The whole therapy is based on relieving the symptoms. Your father must receive a regular nutrition. If his oral feed is compromised, he can be fed by infusions. You should talk to his doctor. I hope I have helped. Bye!
