  • Overview

    Globally, esophagogastric cancers are one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers and a leading cause of cancer deaths. The incidence of esophagogastric cancers in the United States has declined over the last 10 years and 5-year overall survival has improved. However, esophagogastric cancers are often diagnosed in an advanced stage where the 5-year survival is 5.3%. The treatment of these cancers often involves surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. The advent of targeted and immunotherapy have yielded improvements in survival given either in combination or as a single agent in patients with advanced disease.
