Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers pose a major challenge to global public health. In 2018, Arnold and colleagues (PMID: 32247694) estimated that, there were 4.8 million new cases of GI cancers and 3.4 million related deaths, worldwide. Lu and colleagues (PMID: 34563100) have recently quantified the impact of lifestyle-related factors on causing GI cancers. There remain many options for the primary and secondary prevention of these cancers, and the management of these cancers is also evolving. Minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) surgery is becoming increasingly applied to complement open surgery. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy have not only resulted in lengthening disease-free survival, but also have a significant impact on overall survival. The last decade has witnessed a paradigm shift with a growing interest in cancer survivorship and quality of life. This Special Issue aims to bring together original research, as well as impactful reviews from around the world, which highlight the progress being made in different aspects of the management, including survivorship, of a broad spectrum of GI cancers.
There is a need to highlight and celebrate impactful research being carried out across the broad spectrum of gastrointestinal (GI) cancers, bringing together original research, as well as impactful reviews from around the world highlighting the progress being made in different aspects of the management, including survivorship, of a broad spectrum of GI cancers.
