Gastrointestinal cancers and Leading-Edge Therapies

Gastrointestinal cancer is a condition that affects the digestive tract and its associated organs like the oesophagus, gut, gallbladder, liver, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, colon, rectum and anus. GI cancer is the most common type of cancer that occurs in children as well as in adults. Diagnosis of GI cancers require endoscopy, followed by biopsy of the suspected portion of the GI tract. Treatment should depend on the location of the tumour, the tissues it has invaded and the type of cancer.
