Young Patient Age as the Cause of Delayed Diagnosis of Gastrointestinal Carcinoma

Title variants
Languages of publication
Most patients diagnosed with gastrointestinal carcinomas are older people. The above-mentioned fact may lead to an erroneous finding that the problem does not concern patients aged between 20 and 30 years. Unfortunately, this assumption is often the reason for late diagnosis and delayed treatment of these malignancies. The study presented an example of three patients subject to surgical management of gastrointestinal carcinomas at the II Department of General and Gastroenterological Surgery, Medical University in Białystok.
