Small Bowel Tumors
Small bowel tumors are a rare clinical entity comprising 3–5% of all gastrointestinal (GI) tumors. Presenting symptoms are often vague and nonspecific, as such small bowel tumors may be encountered as an unexpected source of abdominal pain, weight loss, or anemia or as an incidental finding. This chapter outlines the workup and management of small bowel tumors.
