Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) is a rare cancer affecting the digestive tract or nearby structures within the abdomen. GI Stromal Tumor, or GIST cancer, is a sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that grow from cells of the body’s connective or supportive tissues such as bone, cartilage, tendons, nerves, fat, muscle, synovial tissue (tissue around joints), or blood vessels. (Most cancers are carcinomas, not sarcomas.) Gist Support
