Hi. According to the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, the five-year survival rate for people with esophageal cancer is 19.3 percent. Different patients will have different survival rates based on patients' pathological type, cancer stage and overall condition. Did you take PET-CT to evaluate your condition? BTW, since you said you had two aspiration pneumonia in the past two months, you should be alerted that there may be bronchoesophageal fistula which causes the food from esophagus to move to your bronchus, leading to the aspiration pneumonia. This is common in patients with esophagus cancer, and can be detected by iodine-containing X-ray. You should check it. Barrett's esophagus is a risk factor for esophagus cancer. You need to control that too.
