  • An analysis of temporal trends for esophageal cancer patients diagnosed in 1961–1996 in Sweden showed improvement in relative survival rates (RSRs), but data were not available on stage at diagnosis or on cancer-directed treatment.1 The present report considers temporal changes in RSRs by histology for esophageal cancer patients in the United States. The National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program of high-quality cancer registries, established in 1973… CONTINUE READING
