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