Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor: Understanding Your
GIST Pathology Report


GIST Support International has developed a detailed booklet about GIST pathology results.  This 40-page illustrated booklet will help physicians explain GIST to newly diagnosed patients and will enable patients to discuss their GIST prognosis and treatment plans with their doctors. 

The booklet is co-authored by two expert sarcoma pathologists, Dr. Jason Hornick of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dr. Alex Lazar of MD Anderson Cancer Center. GSI’s science coordinator, Julia D. Royster PhD, served as editor to make sure patients’ common questions were addressed in clear language.
