If you lie down after a big meal, you could bring on some nasty heartburn.
But what if it's something worse?
While uncommon in the U.S., esophageal cancer can be deadly. Most people don't notice anything wrong other than indigestion, and that's why it's important to know about your risk factors -- and prevention factors.
In this segment, esophageal cancer expert, Ronan Kelly, MD, will explain what this cancer is, who is at risk, and how it's treated.
Dr. Kelly is the head of Medical Oncology for the Johns Hopkins Esophageal Cancer Program, where he focuses on affordable, effective cancer care. He is also a board member with ECAN (Esophageal Cancer Action Network). You can visit the ECAN website at www.ECAN.org.
