By eliminating risk factors, patients may be able to prevent esophageal cancer. While the following techniques can reduce the risk, it does not completely prevent patients from developing cancer.
These are some of the ways of reducing your risk of esophageal cancer:
- Stop smoking
- Stop using tobacco
- Limit alcohol consumption
- Seek treatment for acid reflux and Barrett’s esophagus
- Eat a balanced diet with more fruits and vegetables
- Maintain a healthy weight
