Benign Esophageal Tumors

Benign Esophageal Tumors are not very common. These benign tumors may not be harmful but can be troublesome occasionally.

A smooth muscle tumor called leiomyoma is a fairly common benign tumor prevalent in people in the age group 30 to 60. Leiomyomas usually need no treatment if they remain small. But occasionally large leiomyomas develop, causing obstructions in the esophagus. Such obstructions can result in digestive disorders like regurgitation and difficulty swallowing. If discomfort and pain are present, doctors may give analgesics for temporary pain relief. The large leiomyomas causing trouble can be surgically removed, which is a permanent solution to the problem.

Schwannomas associated with nervous tissue, and fibrovascular polyps developing from the connective tissue, are other less commonly occurring noncancerous esophageal tumors.
