Eating well with swallowing difficulties in cancer

University College Cork (UCC) and Breakthrough Cancer Research have released books entitled, ‘Eating Well with swallowing difficulties in cancer,’ and “Making the Most of Every Bite”

The recipes contained within the cookbooks are all easy to chew and swallow and were created specifically for cancer patients who experience difficulties when eating.

We know all too well the difficulties faced by oesophageal and stomach cancer patients so think these will be great resources.

E-book versions of the books are available from www.breakthroughcancerresearch.ie.

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.
