Spring 2020 Newsletter

We hope you and your family are keeping safe and well during these unprecedented times. We are keen to stay in contact with you, albeit from afar, and so we are pleased to bring you our Spring newsletter.

It has been a busy year for OGCancerNI and we can only hope that it will continue once normality returns.

 

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.
