Intestine Cancer

Cancer of the intestine (small intestine) is an aggressive cancer that may be associated with difficulty eating, bloating, and pain. It requires a coordinated treatment plan that includes surgery and sometimes chemotherapy. It is very important that the proper lymph node surgery be combined with the surgery.
