Neoplasms of the Gastrointestinal System

Neoplasms of the Gastrointestinal System

by Carlo Raj, MD, Kevin Pei, MD

Gastrointestinal cancers are collectively the most common malignancies in the world. In the United States, colorectal cancer accounts for most of these malignancies. This is unfortunate because colorectal cancer is highly preventable. Moreover, screening for colorectal cancer is cost-effective and becomes increasingly important in an aging population. Neoplasms may affect nearly any part of the gastrointestinal tract—the esophagus, stomach, hepatobiliary system, and pancreas. Each has subsets of benign and malignant neoplasms that can cause various complications. At times, neoplasms of the GI tract are associated with syndromic manifestations, such as Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, which can present with signs and symptoms external to the GI tract initially.
