The goal of this study is to evaluate how treatment for esophageal cancer affects your quality of life. The findings of this study may help us understand how this disease and its treatment affect your lifestyle, diet, exercise, support system and overall quality of life. We hope this study will provide important information that can be used to develop programs to improve the quality of life of patients with esophageal cancer.

In order to determine the impact of esophageal cancer and its treatment on patients' quality of life over time, this study will prospectively follow a cohort of patients at specified intervals, evaluating their physical symptoms, physical and social functioning and overall quality of life.
