There is limited information on contemporary incidence rates and trends, by race, ethnicity, and age, for major subtypes of esophageal and gastric cancer in the United States. We examined the most recent nationwide incidence data for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC), gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA), and gastric non-cardia adenocarcinoma (GNCA) by race, ethnicity, and age in the United States.
