Cardia cancer - Definition


Definition


Cardia cancer is a cancer that is located at the junction between the esophagus and stomach. Contrary to what its name might lead us to believe, it does not affect the heart, but it is a cancer of the digestive tract, and is most common in men over 50 years old. It often appears through difficulties eating and is confirmed by an esophagogastric endoscopy. The treatments of this type of cancer depend on the stage and involve surgery, the combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy, or these three types of treatment simultaneously.
