  1. This is my first visit to this site and feeling great to be here. This post "Ron Silver dies of esophageal cancer" is amazing. And have shared this with face book!

When the DNA of the cells lining the esophagus gets damaged, the cells start multiplying autonomously and uncontrollably, and ultimately results in a mass of malignant cells.
