Key facts

Oesophago-gastric (OG) cancer is currently the fifth most common cause of cancer in the UK affecting around 16,000 people each year, and fourth most common cause of cancer death.
The latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) net-survival estimates for oesophageal cancer in England are 42.3 per cent for one year and 14.3 per cent for five years, which compares unfavourably to many other types of cancer.  The rates for stomach cancer are similarly poor, being 42.3 per cent and 18.2 per cent, respectively.
