Esophageal and gastric cancers have high mortality rates secondary to the late presentation of most patients at advanced stages. Improved survival is achievable when the disease is confined to the more superficial mucosal layers and treated. This review will focus on the detection, screening, staging, endoscopic treatment, and surveillance of early upper gastrointestinal cancer - squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus, esophageal adenocarcinoma, and gastric adenocarcinoma.
