It cancer isn't dealt with soon it can grow and create a ton of damage. In this video I'm going to share the leading Esophageal Cancer Symptoms with 5 ideas to reduce your chance of getting the disease. If someone gets this cancer what body part do you think it affects? It affects the esophagus, which is a tube that runs from the mouth all the way to the stomach. According to WebMD there could be difficulty or pain when it comes to swallowing as well as in the chest area. Other indicators of this problem could be coughing. People cough to clear mucus or foreign material from the airways, but also if it's irritated. Since a cancer tumor can irritate this pathway it does make sense on why coughing could be a symptom. Next up is hoarseness or abnormal voices changes in a persons voice could be a sign of cancer. There could also be heartburn as well and this is just chest pain. The interesting thing is that heartburn has nothing to do with the heart and is caused when stomach acid splashes up into the esophagus, which it is not supposed to. The last symptom that WebMd mentions is weight loss. Unfortunately, If someone does get cancer in this area early on there might not be any symptoms. Then once the cancer has really entrenched itself can someone notice and by that time it's harder to eliminate. This is why prevention and routine checks are so valuable. With a routine check a person can catch something before it gets worse. When it comes to risk factors there is one thing that someone can do to really reduce their odds of getting this disease and do you know what it is? I'll give you a hint it costs money and smells up the air. Yes, smoking cigarettes can really increase the risk of this type of cancer. In fact according to Cancer Research UK around 89% of esophageal cancers in the UK are connected to lifestyle. Other risk factors include being obese, abusing alcohol and eating too much red or processed meats. Apart from eliminating these risk factors one really great thing someone can do is drink the second most popular beverage in the world and do you know what that is? It's green tea. How it can kill off cancer is because it has something known as ECGC, which could cause certain cancer cells to die. Another thing someone can do is to consume a ton of foods that have antioxidants such as bright fruits or veggies. A good multivitamin can help and lastly there are tons of herbal remedies that could lower the risk of cancer. To sum everything up the leading esophageal cancer symptoms are pain with swallowing, chest pains, coughing, hoarseness with voice and weight loss. You can reduce your chance of getting this disease with the following ideas. Not using tobacco Not abusing alcohol Limit your consumption of red or processed meats Consuming more antioxidants through fruits, vegetables and a good multivitamin Consuming good herbs Supplements and alternative medicine can be confusing and even harmful.
