About Gastrointestinal Oncology
Cancer is one of the world's leading causes of deaths, disorders and disabilities. Gastrointestinal tract cancer follows a peculiar distribution pattern across the globe among all organ cancers. More deaths than any other cancers are attributed to them. These malignant gastric tumors are also referred to as stomach cancer and are mainly found in people aged 50 to 70 years.
Gastrointestinal (GI) Cancer is a collective term which encompasses a group of growths of mass or cancer cells that affect the gastrointestinal tract and digestive system. These cancers develop through the formation of a lump or ulcer within the stomach and spread diffusely throughout the other parts of the stomach.
