Hello! My grandpa had esophageal cancer had has undergone a surgery one year back but we did not do the chemotherapy as her age is 65 above. Now she experiences loss of appetite, vomiting, regurgitation, indigestion, weakness. Doctor said that some part of her digestive tract has swollen up so are there any chances of growth of cancer cells once again?

Yes there are chances of cancer recurring. The chances depend on your stage of cancer and the type of surgery. But the present symptoms may not be cancer always. She needs to be evaluated for the cause of her symptoms and treat her accordingly.
Dear lybrate-user, hi Welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query for Sulochana.* There are more chances of recurrence of cancer depending upon the narration.* Must take an endoscopy examination and CT scan with contrast. Hope this clears your query. Regards dear take care.
