Digestive cancers are among the most common cancers, especially stomach cancer and colon cancer. Patients with these cancers might have no symptoms or mistake them for other problems related to their digestive system such as digestive disorders.

Experts said the cancers can be cured if they are detected and treated in the early stages. 

Regular health checks and screenings are very important for early detection. Early detection and treatment will extend life expectancy and reduce treatment costs. — VNS
