It is more complicated than making a guess regarding the outcome - it depends on where the cancer is, what kind it is, how agressive it is. Chemo usually shrinks the tumour and may make it operable after treatment. If it is totally inoperable they may put in a prosthesis to keep the esophagus open so that the patient can at least eat.
