The small intestine attaches the stomach to the large intestine and its primary role is to absorb and break down vitamins, fat and other substances that the body needs to function. If a tumor is present, it could block the small intestine.
When cancer cells form in the small or large intestines, it’s classified as intestinal cancer. Cancer inside the large intestine is classified as colorectal cancer. Small intestine cancer causes cells to grow in the small intestine and is a rare disease. Sometimes signs can include abdominal pain, unexplained weight loss, blood in the stool, or a lump in the abdomen.
