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.
Early Diagnosis is Key #CatchItEarlyOesophageal cancer like many other cancers does not discriminate between age or sex and knowing and recognising the signs and symptoms are crucial to early diagnosis.

- Persistent Indigestion
