In brief: Dysphagia
Weight loss, and pain with swallowing are some of the early signs of esophageal cancer.
Unfortunately by the time symptoms present the cancer is usually advanced.

In brief: Hoarseness, etc..
Symptoms vary with the primary site.
Oral cavity lesions can present with nonhealing ulcers that are painful. Hoarseness is an early symptom of laryngeal or throat cancer. Sore throat or otalgia can be a late symptom of oropharyngeal cancer. Rarely, patients can have rock hard cervical or supraclavicular lymph node enlargement. Most patients present over 50 years of age.
