It is hard to believe that four months have passed since Covid-19 started to impact on our lives. We have all experienced the restrictions that have been necessary to stop the spread of the virus. We hope that you and your families have all kept well and are adjusting to the new way of life!

We are keen to stay in contact with you, albeit from afar, and so we are pleased to bring you our Summer newsletter.

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.
