OPA Awareness Leaflet

OPA Awareness Leaflet

  • REF: OPAAL

The aim of this OPA awareness campaign is to educate the public, pharmacists, and GPs about the early signs for oesophageal cancer: heartburn, indigestion and food getting stuck. Owing to the difficulty in detecting oesophageal/gastric cancer early on, diagnosis will show that only about 30% of patients can be offered surgery with hope of a cure, but the majority will need palliative care over time.
