In brief: Depends

Curing cancer of the intestinal tract depends on the type of cancer and the stage of cancer at diagnosis.
Most early stage cancers of the intestine can be cured with surgical removal of the tumor with low recurrence rates.

In brief: Depending on stage

In general, all cancers are treated according to the stage at presentation and the type of tissue involved.
In general early stages may be curable. Unfortunately a large number of cancers, if not most of them, are found too late for cure. Cancer pts. Must discuss this with their cancer specialists. What type of cancer the pt. Has and at what stage is in.
