my father (62) was just diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the lower third of the esophagus. i was trying to understand the endoscopy report and as far as i know the bloodwork and cat scans revealed that the cancer has not spread to other organs but that it is "infilrating the stroma"...i'm assuming of the stomach. we are meeting with 2 oncologists tomorrow and i was wondering if anyone had any advice on important questions we should be asking. we will be finding out what stage the cancer is in and if it is indeed contained to one area or if it has spead. if anyone has can offer any hope or advice it'd be much appreciated. im scared to death and reading about the cancer on the internet is just confirming my worst fears.
