What Is GI Cancer?

Gastrointestinal, or GI cancer, is a disease that affects the digestive tract organs, which includes the stomach, intestines, pancreas, colon, liver, rectum, and more. Everything you eat passes through this 25-foot-long pathway extending from the mouth to the anus. GI cancer is common around the world, but treatments are effective when the cancer is detected in its earlier stages. You may have no symptoms in the early stages of GI cancer, which makes it important to screen for GI cancers, such as colorectal cancer, through advanced screening techniques.

  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Bloody stool
