You might have some of these tests to help find out if an oesophageal cancer has come back or whether it has spread. The tests can also sometimes check how well treatments are working.
You might have a CT scan of your stomach, chest and the area between your hips (pelvis) to find out where the cancer is and whether it has spread.
You might have an ultrasound to find out if the cancer has spread to your liver.
A PET-CT scan combines a CT scan and a PET scan into one. It can show where your oesophageal cancer is and whether it has spread.
We know it’s a worrying time for people with cancer, we have information to help.
