GI cancers: Occur in the tubes and organs associated with digestion and elimination. It begins at the esphagus, then stomach, small gut (duodenum, jejunum, ileum), then colon and rectum & anus. The pancreas and bile ducts, gall bladder included. The derangements causing cancers can cause these organs to malfunction, and the cells populate other organs.
