Conference paper

Abstract

The incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus has been increasing in most Western countries over the past 25 years. In the United States adenocarcinoma has replaced squamous cell carcinoma as the most common esophageal cancer. In Japan, however, squamous cell carcinoma is still the most common histological type of esophageal carcinoma. In this study the incidence of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus in Japan over the past three decades was assessed based on the data from the nationwide registry.
