What Is Small Intestine Cancer?

Battling a progressive disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Small intestine cancer, also known as small bowel cancer, is the uncontrollable growth and spread of cancer cells in the small intestine. The small intestine is part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and connects the stomach to the large intestine. Its primary function is to break down and absorb food, nutrients, vitamins, and other substances the body needs.

The small intestine makes up more than 70 percent of the length and 90 percent of the surface area of the GI tract. Despite the vital organ’s size, small bowel cancer is less common than other gastrointestinal cancers in the United States.

Small Intestine Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are five types of small intestine cancer, including:

Adenocarcinoma
Adenocarcinoma begins in the secretory cells, which line major organs like the small intestine.

Sarcoma
This cancer type develops in the soft tissue of the small intestine.

Carcinoid tumors
These slow-growing cancer cells often take root in the lower section of the small intestine.

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs)
More than half of GISTs arise in the stomach and not all tumors are cancerous.

Intestinal lymphomas
This cancer, which starts in the cells of the immune system, can be further categorized as either Hodgkin lymphoma or non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Small Intestine Cancer Symptoms

Like most gastrointestinal cancers, early signs of small bowel cancer tend to be vague and nonspecific. The disease may manifest itself through abdominal discomfort associated with:

  • Bloating
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea

More severe symptoms of small intestine cancer may include the following, which suggest possible cancer progression:

  • Weakness
  • Weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Anemia
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Lump in the abdomen
  • Blood-tinged or black stools
  • Jaundice or yellowing of the skin

If you have persistent symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Small Intestine Cancer Causes

Medical studies about the exact cause of small intestine cancer are ongoing. However, doctors know that several factors can increase a man or woman’s chances of getting the disease. Some risk factors associated with small intestine cancer are:

  • Increasing age
  • Personal or family history of GI cancers
  • A diet high in fat
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Tobacco smoking or chewing
  • Exposure to certain chemicals, such as phenoxy acetic acid
  • Lymphedema, a condition where excess fluid collects in tissues
  • Certain conditions that affect the gut, including Crohn’s, celiac disease, or colon cancer

It is important to understand that not everyone without risk factors is immune to small bowel cancer. Conversely, people who have risk factors will not always have the disease. If you have risk factors, discuss them with your doctor.

Diagnostic Tests for Small Intestine Cancer

Early diagnosis is key to improving your small intestine cancer prognosis and life expectancy. Aside from a complete physical and medical examination, common procedures used to detect small intestine cancer include:

  • Blood tests
  • X-ray imaging
  • CAT or CT scan
  • MRI scan
  • Colonoscopy
  • Endoscopy
  • Barium swallow
  • Liver function tests
  • Laparotomy
  • Biopsy
