Gastric Cancer Awareness Month

November is Gastric Cancer Awareness Month

Each year ~136.000 people are diagnosed with gastric cancer, while ~97.000 patients die of the disease in Europe, placing this cancer type in sixth place among the most common causes of cancer-related deaths. Gastric cancer costs are around €5 billion each year in Europe, of which €1,9 billion relate to direct costs.

Oesophageal Cancer Awareness Month – April

Gastric cancer requires a 360-degree, holistic and adequate disease management approach, which encompasses every aspect of the patient journey and includes the patient in every part of the decision-making process.

Successful strategies to manage gastric cancer should focus on prevention and early diagnosis but also on the morbidities, which frequently arise when treating this cancer.

To spread the word and mark the month, DiCE has produced a campaign to help raise awareness across Europe. We have also invited our Members to also spread the word in their countries.
