Site-Specific Cancer Series: Gastrointestinal Cancers

This volume in the site-specific cancer series examines cancers of the gastrointestinal tract, including those of the esophagus, stomach, colon, rectum, and anus. In many cases, with proper screening, these cancers can be prevented and, when detected and treated at an early stage, cured.

  • An overview of gastrointestinal cancers
  • Anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal tract
  • Biology
  • Prevention and screening
  • Esophageal and gastric cancers
  • Colorectal and anal cancers
  • Nursing care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers
  • Symptom management of gastrointestinal cancers
  • Evidence-based practice.
