Esophageal Cancer No Longer Considered Rare

By Sara Lee Kessler

 Esophageal cancer now kills 14,000 Americans a year.  Baseball legend Harmon Killibrew died in May after a six-month battle with the disease.  The classic symptoms are heartburn, or acid indigestion. If detected early, at the pre-cancerous state, known as Barrett’s esophagus, the survival rate approaches 98-percent according to Dr. Jared Wasserman, who practices in Englewood, and is an expert on esophageal cancer.
