The aim of this article is to examine trends in the proportion of incidence of unspecified anatomical subsite for cancers of the oesophagus and stomach over time in England and Wales. The proportion of gastric cancer that is unspecified for anatomical subsite has decreased slightly from 66% to 55% between 1971-99 and, by inference, the accuracy of registration of gastric cancer by anatomical subsite has marginally improved. The accuracy of reporting for esophageal cancer in the same period also seems to have improved, from 30-41% for anatomically specified subsites. The large increase in incidence of functional adenocarcinoma amongst males cannot, however, be wholly attributed to this improved accuracy. Thus, the rise appears genuine.
