      Finished the colon cancer treatments 2010. The esophageal cancer began 2019 with chemo/radiation followed by esophagectomy last year. Esophageal cancer returned Jan. 2020 and I just finished 5 week course of Proton radiation and chemotherapy. CT scheduled for next week.

      Some methods that have proven to work for some EC patients (HER2).

      Have you already been tested for HER2?

      I do no recall HER2 being mentioned. I have an appt. with my oncologist in a week and I’ll ask.
      Thanks for the lead into that possibility.
