EAC incidence continues to rise in Switzerland

EAC became the most common form of esophageal cancer in Switzerland around 2010. From the authors' conclusions:A significant increase in the incidence of adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus was observed in Switzerland during thestudy period 1986-2015. A parallel rise of GORD and obesity over the same period may, at least partially, be responsible for this trend. For oesophageal squamous cell carcinoma, a decreasing trend was only observed in males most likely related to sex-specific lifestyle changes.
