Esophageal Cancer

Future Research

Doctors all over the country conduct many types of clinical trials for esophageal cancer (studies in which people take part voluntarily). These esophageal cancer trials include studies of ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat cancer; studies of the psychological effects of the disease; and studies of ways to improve comfort and quality of life.

People who take part in esophageal cancer clinical trials have the first chance to benefit from new approaches. They also make important contributions to medical science. Although clinical trials may pose some risks, esophageal cancer researchers take very careful steps to protect people who take part. People who are interested in being part of an esophageal cancer clinical trial should talk with their doctor.
