Hi, My husband and I have been at the esophageal cancer battle a long time (almost 2 years) now. Never tire of hearing other stories that we can relate to, so I'm glad I found this site. Does anyone here have squamous cell type (as opposed to adenocarcinoma)? My husband has basaloid squamous cell esophageal cancer and, although the standard for treatment and prognoses for both types are considered the same, I'm just wondering.
My husband is doing well after a helluva 2 years, having been diagnosed as stage IVa and then having a recurrence. Next PET scan in 3 weeks or so, staying cautiously optimistic!
