Part 5 is a guide to the treatment options for people with
squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. It shows
what treatments are recommended. This information is
taken from the treatment guidelines written by NCCN
experts for esophageal cancer doctors. However, your
doctors may suggest other treatments based on your
health and personal wishes.
Much effort has been made to make Part 5 easy to
read. Charts are used to list treatment options and
map the steps through the treatment process. This
information is also described in the text. Some words
that you may not know are defined on the page and
in the
in Part 8. More information about the
treatments in this guide can be found in Part 4.
