Gastrointestinal cancer is cancer of the digestive system's organs, which includes the:
- Small intestine
- Large intestine
The last six feet of the large intestines is the colon, and the last six inches of the colon is the rectum. The majority of gastrointestinal cancers are in the colon and rectum, and may be referred to as colorectal cancer. The estimated number of gastrointestinal cancer cases totals more than 250,000 annually.
