 Conventional observation and iodine staining have been employed for detection of early esophageal cancer. Magnifying endoscopy has recently been used for diagnosis of esophageal lesions. Usage of the magnifying endoscope enables also the distinguishing of malignant lesions from benign lesions. The flat iodine unstained lesion, the protrusion on the esophago-gastric junction accompanied by reflux esophagitis, the mucosal change on Barrett's epithelium are among the lesions frequently under discussion.

 Development of endoscopic technique is changing the treatment of esophageal cancer. Detection of esophageal cancer in its early stage is very important.
