“In the last six months I saw two female patients in their 50s diagnosed with esophagus adenocarcinoma within one-to-two years of having a sleeve gastrectomy. One of them had an EGD performed by the bariatric surgeon at the time of the surgery. I know GERD symptoms are worsened after sleeve gastrectomy. Is this just a coincidence, or does the risk of esophagus cancer go up even in women after sleeve? Should we be more proactive in scoping these patients?”
