​This publication stories the hot development made within the prevention, prognosis, and therapy of esophageal melanoma. Epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, staging, and diagnosis are first mentioned. The radiologic evaluation of esophageal melanoma and the position of endoscopy in analysis, staging, and administration are then defined. the foundations of surgical resection, radiation remedy, and systemic chemotherapy for esophageal melanoma are defined, and specific cognizance is paid to the multidisciplinary administration of early-stage cervical, thoracic, distal, and junctional tumors. up to date details is additionally supplied at the remedy of metastatic and recurrent disorder and on methods that can impact destiny care, akin to chemoprevention. Esophageal melanoma is still one of many least studied cancers even though it bills for greater than 400,000 deaths around the globe every year. nearly all of esophageal cancers around the globe are squamous phone carcinomas, but some time past few many years significant epidemiologic alterations have happened affecting the occurrence of adenocarcinomas in Western nations. regardless of the advances in surgical and non-surgical treatments, total survival has no longer replaced considerably. it really is was hoping that Esophageal melanoma: Prevention, prognosis and treatment will help experts from various disciplines, together with surgical procedure, radiation remedy, gastroenterology, and clinical oncology, in offering optimum, up to date care to the good thing about patients.

39) [32]. Conclusion Esophageal cancer, while not a common cancer, continues to increase in incidence, with predictive models estimating cases of esophageal cancer to almost double to 808,508 by the year 2035, resulting in 728,920 deaths in that year from the disease. The two histological subtypes, esophageal adenocarcinoma and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, differ in their epidemiology and risk factors by geographic region. EAC has experienced a surge in incidence rates during the past few decades, most strikingly in Western countries, where incidence rates have increased up to 20 J.
