In brief: Can be quick

Depends on level involved depends on which type of cancer these are very sneaky! and do not present early in their growth.
By the time symptoms, they are advanced, spread to adjoining bronchus, nodes, and metastasize. Sorry, terrible disease with short survival even when caught.

In brief: Not sure

In sorry for your loss.
Esophageal cancer can be very aggressive. I have seen patients die as quickly as two weeks after diagnosis. It's a tough one and sometimes symptoms don't start until if has grown significantly.
