A Paradigm Shift in Esophageal Cancer: Unraveling the Mystery of Declining Rates and Shifting Patterns

Over the past 50 years, there's been a notable shift in esophageal cancer trends. Squamous cell carcinoma rates have notably dropped, while adenocarcinoma incidence has plateaued. This analysis is based on the incidence of esophageal cancer in the US from 1975-2018. The age-adjusted incidence rate (AAIR) of squamous cell carcinoma has shown a steady decrease from 1986 to 2011, suggesting medical or lifestyle changes are positively influencing outcomes. Adenocarcinoma, conversely, despite a sharp rise from 1975 to 1999, has remained stable since, presenting a medical challenge. These differing trends underscore the urgent need to uncover the factors influencing the decline in squamous cell carcinoma and the persistent stability of adenocarcinoma. It is imperative that we continue to investigate esophageal cancer to strive for a future where it becomes a disease of the past.
