GI cancer is cancer that affects any of the organs in the digestive system, including:
- Small intestine
- Large intestine
The majority of gastrointestinal cancers are called colorectal cancer and occur in the colon (which is the last six feet of the large intestine) and rectum (which is the last six inches of the colon).
