What is Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor?

GIST, or gastrointestinal stromal tumor, is a type of soft tissue sarcoma that occurs in the digestive tract. The small intestine and stomach are two of the most prevalent locations where GISTs may develop.

This type of tumor will begin in the specialized nerve cells that line the walls of the digestive tract. These cells have evolved into an important component of the autonomic nervous system. A specific DNA alteration in these cells will result in GIST, which will control digestive activities such as food movement
