Survival data were also compared with those of the German population. RESULTS: During a mean (+/-SD) observation period of 10 +/- 5 years, 2 patients with Barrett's esophagus (3%; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 0% to 11%) developed esophageal cancer, and 9 (15%; 95% CI: 7% to 27%) developed extra-esophageal cancers.
– 2% of all Barrett's esophagus patients will develop Barrett's cancer during a mean of 7 years (0.3% per year); – 15% of all Barrett's HGD patients will develop Barrett's cancer during a mean of 7 years (2.2% per year). – Figure 1a shows that esophageal cancer is uncommon.
Fighting esophageal cancer starts by addressing the reasons behind it.. A major risk factor for adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is Barrett's esophagus,. (
