This webcast will address the issues surrounding the decision to have an operation. Most GIST patients will see a surgeon at some point during their treatment. The decision to consider surgical options depends on a number of factors such as tumor location, tumor size, tumor number, response to drug therapy, and risk of recurrence.
Dr. Jason Sicklick from Moores Cancer Center at the University of California San Diego will discuss situations when surgical management may be appropriate for managing localized, regionally advanced and metastatic GIST.
There will be a 15 minute Q & A at the end of the presentation.
