Gastrointestinal tumors

Abstract

In the elderly, incidence rates for gastrointestinal tract cancer increase exponentially as a function of age, reaching their peak at about 70 years. Many factors, including prolonged exposure to carcinogens and genetic mutations, are intimately connected to the binomial cancer age. Gastrointestinal tract tumors have very vague symptoms ranging from completely asymptomatic to acute abdomen. The challenge for oncogeriatric is early diagnosis, allowing appropriate treatment, lower risk of complications, and reduced hospitalization time, with t a reduced mortality rate. Imaging plays a fundamental role in the diagnosis and follow-up of gastrointestinal tract tumors.
