Oesophageal cancer is a type of cancer affecting the oesophagus (gullet) – the long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach.
It mainly affects people in their 60s and 70s and is more common in men than women.
Oesophageal cancer doesn’t usually have any symptoms at first. But as cancer grows, it can cause swallowing problems and other symptoms.
Difficulty swallowing is the most common symptom of oesophageal cancer.
Cancer can narrow the oesophagus, making it difficult for food to pass down. It may feel as though food is getting stuck and sometimes swallowing may be uncomfortable or painful.
You may have to chew your food more thoroughly, or you can only eat soft foods. If the tumour continues to grow, even liquids may become difficult to swallow.
Other symptoms of oesophageal cancer can include:
Topically apply, 10 drops Frankincense and Myrrh Blend over the throat, twice a day.
Apply Acid Reflux Roller over the stomach, when needed.
