Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Esophagus: Our Thirty Years’ Experience
In Italy, esophageal cancer has a mortality rate of 3.7/100 000, with the majority of patients in the northern regions (Friuli-Venezia Giulia 8.1/100000, Trentino-Alto Adige 7.4/100 000 Veneto 6.8/100 000), probably due to alcohol consumption and smoking. In central Italy, the mortality rate is 2.1/100 000 in Lazio and Abruzzi, 3.0/100 000 in Umbria, 3.2/100 000 in Marche, and 5.3/100 000 in Toscana .
