GIT – IV. GIT Tumours – Crash Course

The GIT is a good example of learning about neoplasms, in terms of :

1. Nomenclature

2. Progression of premalignant conditions to malignant tumours (eg. Adenoma – Carcinoma sequence)

3. Grading and Staging of malignant tumours

Where to start? The main types of neoplasms in the GIT follow the layers of the gut wall – so revise your histology and look at the layers one by one.

– Pathology may arise from any of the layers – most tumours arise from the mucosa and the histologic type depends on the native mucosa, which the video will elaborate on.
