Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST)
These tumors, also known as soft tissue sarcoma, generally originate in the gastrointestinal tract soft tissues, oftentimes in the small intestine or stomach. They’re rare and are usually found in adults ages 40 to 70 years old. People with GISTs will often experience nausea, anemia, vomiting, pain or swelling in the abdomen, weight loss, or loss of appetite. They are many times seen in those that have been exposed to radiation.
