Symptoms of oesophageal cancer include difficulty in swallowing, pain in the throat, persistent coughing and eventually weight loss as the person is unable to eat properly. The cause of this cancer is unknown, but smoking and excessive drinking of alcohol places a person at risk.A gastro-intestinal surgeon can perform a gastroscopy to view the cancer and a course of chemotherapy may then be administered by an oncologist.
