© Springer-Verlag London Ltd., part of Springer Nature 2018. Oesophageal tumours provide a challenge in management. Curative treatment for adenocarcinoma and squamous cancer invariably involve surgical resection. Small cell cancer is managed without surgical intervention. Benign lesions such as leiomyomas must be monitored but rarely require intervention unless they are causing obstruction. The staging investigations are often extensive and complex as there is no place for palliative surgery for metastatic disease. Surgery requires alymphadenectomy and feeding access. The procedures are high risk and complications are common. This chapter highlights practical ideas to make the procedure and the management of the complications more clear and straightforward.
