Esophageal cancer is cancer arising from the esophagus—the food pipe that runs between the throat and the stomach.

- Esophageal cancer

Its identification and follow-up is considered relevant due to increased risk of squamous cell carcinomas of the esophagus and pharynx.

- Plummer–Vinson syndrome

The esophagus may be affected by gastric reflux, cancer, prominent dilated blood vessels called varices that can bleed heavily, tears, constrictions, and disorders of motility.

- Esophagus

Upper esophageal webs (post cricoid region - contrasts with Schatzki rings found at the lower end of esophagus).

- Plummer–Vinson syndrome

Plummer–Vinson syndrome (a rare disease that involves esophageal webs) is also a risk factor.

- Esophageal cancer

Strictures may also develop in chronic anemia, and Plummer-Vinson syndrome.
