Call the Midwife

Who saw Call The Midwife last night?

We think it’s an appropriate time to share the signs and symptoms of #oesophagealcancer!

Did you know that the show is based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth (author of the books) who died of oesophageal cancer in 2011.

What is Oesophago-Gastric Cancer?

Oesophageal cancer is cancer of the gullet and gastric cancer is cancer of the stomach. Combined, they are medically known as oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer. The oesophagus (more commonly known as the gullet or food pipe) is the long tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. In Northern Ireland in 2016, a total of 226 people were diagnosed with oesophageal (gullet) cancer. In the same year, 214 people were newly diagnosed with gastric (stomach) cancer.
