John Newlands and Carol Goodman, Cancer Information Nurse Specialists

If you have questions about cancer of the oesophagus, join our specialist nurses live in the chatroom from 12-1pm on Wednesday 8 May. 

The oesophagus, or gullet, is the long muscular tube that moves food from the mouth down to the stomach. Cancer can happen anywhere along the length of the oesophagus. 

John Newlands and Carol Goodman are specialist information nurses from our Macmilllan Support Line. In next week’s webchat, they’ll be answering questions on topics such as symptoms, diagnosis, types of oesophagus cancer and difficulties eating. 

To take part, just join us in the chatroom between 12 and 1pm on Wednesday 8 May. 

Or, if you can’t make it, post your question in the comments below, and I’ll ask it for you on the day. All the questions and answers will be published here on the blog after the chat. 

You can also speak to a nurse like John or Carol on the free Macmillan Support Line (0808 808 0000, Monday-Friday, 9am-8pm).
