My father was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma last week. For the last few months he has been experiencing food getting stuck in his throat and retching when eating. He has lost 7 pounds in the last month. After several weeks of encouraing him to get checked out he had an EGD. 2cm mass located at the GE junction. Pathology report shows invasinve moderately to poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. He sees the oncologist tomorrow for staging and to determine treatment plan. He lives in California and his gastroenterologist advised he find a surgeon at Stanford or UCSF. We are in the process of researching surgeons. Would love to hear any advice, suggestions, or simply words of encouragement.
