My father recently diagnosed with esophagus adenocarcinoma. Since he had history with barretts esophagus he found the adenocarcinoma in hes annual endoscopy (he had no symptoms). The doctor took samples from the cancer and it showed that it has good differentiated, he also did a endoscopic ultrasound and showed that the cancer is in the submucosa leaving the muscular layer unaffected. The ultrasound also showed the possiblity of 1 lumph node affected but he couldnt tell for sure because of its small size so we are waiting for the PET/CT to make sure.
