Reports | Published: 11 Jan 2024

The National Cancer Audit Collaborating Centre (NATCAN) has published a State of the Nation report from the National Oesophago-Gastric Cancer Audit (NOGCA) on the care received by people with oesophago-gastric cancer in England and Wales from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2022.

OG cancer predominantly affects older people and occurs more frequently in men than in women, though there is variation by tumour type. Stomach cancer as a proportion of all OG cancers continues to decline, accounting for 25.1% of all cases diagnosed in 2021/22 compared to 33.8% in 2012/13. Over two-fifths of people in the audit were diagnosed with stage 4 (metastatic) disease, an increase from 37% in 2012/13.

This report also contains key findings in relation to:

  • Routes to diagnosis
  • Staging investigations
  • Treatment planning
  • Waiting times along the care pathway
  • Curative surgery
  • Non-curative treatment
  • Nutritional support
  • High-grade dysplasia.
