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.
