Emergent approach to small bowel tumors: diagnosis and treatment

CONCLUSION: Small bowel tumors frequently present with abdominal pain, bloating, and nausea and vomiting. CT and endoscopic procedures are the primary diagnostic tools. Small bowel cancers are often diagnosed late due to subtle clinical findings and the limitations of endoscopic imaging. Targeted screening strategies may be beneficial for certain at-risk and symptomatic patient groups. Early surgical intervention offers significant advantages for diagnosed patients.PMID:38506384 | PMC:PMC10977489 | DOI:10.14744/tjtes.2024.33680
