Methods: Patients who were diagnosed with esophageal cancer between 2010 and 2014 were identified from the Surveillance Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) data. We performed Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and developed a Cox regression proportional hazard model to explore the effect of tumor length on survival. 
Results: A total of 6,897 esophageal cancer patients were identified. The patients were classified according to tumor length: 2,334 patients had a tumor length ≤3 cm, and 4,563 patients had a tumor length >3 cm. Patients with a tumor length >3 cm were more likely to have poorer histological grade (P},
