Esophageal Cancer Risk Factor

Smoking, heavy alcohol use and Barrett esophagus can increase the risk of developing esophageal cancer.

  • Tobacco use.
  • Heavy alcohol use.
  • Older age
  • Tobacco chewing
  • Consuming spicy food.
  • Barrett esophagus: A condition in which the cells lining the lower part of the esophagus have changed or been replaced with abnormal cells that could lead to cancer of the esophagus. Gastric reflux (the backing up of stomach contents into the lower section of the esophagus) may irritate the esophagus and, over time, cause Barrett esophagus.
