Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is one of the common types of malignant lesion and has its highest prevalence round the world.

The advancement in endoscopy has opened many opportunities and diagnosis of all esophageal lesions became simple and effective.

The surplus of malignancies such as esophagus, esophago- gastric junction and stomach have become a significant health problem and threatening the people all over the world. Delayed diagnosis on these disorders particularly resulting in high mortality ratio and warrant for a systematic evaluation in patients. In this context, the present study analyse the association and prognostic significance of HER2/ neu in gastroesophageal lesions with other factors like age, size, histological type and grading and the incidence and distribution of gastroesophageal lesions in patients.
