Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) overview

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are tumors that occur in the gastrointestinal tract. GISTs belong to a group of cancers called soft tissue sarcomas. GISTs can be benign or malignant. The symptoms of GIST include pain or discomfort in the abdomen, a mass in the abdomen that can be felt with the hand, nausea and vomiting, vomiting blood or having blood in the stool, and fatigue due to anemia (low red blood cell counts).
