This is the 2015 Annual Report of the National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA).
The results presented in this report are based upon patients diagnosed with oesophago-gastric cancer between 1 April 2012 and 31 March 2014.
Oesophago-gastric (O-G) cancer is currently the fifth most common cause of cancer in the UK affecting around 15,000 people each year, and fourth most common cause of cancer death. The overall five-year survival rate in England and Wales is approximately 15 per cent for both oesophageal and gastric cancer.
