Overview

There are no established preventive measures to prohibit developing small intestinal cancers. However, limiting tobacco and alcohol use, moderate healthy diet consumption and treatment of gastroenteritis and other intestinal pathology with increased risk of carcinomatos changes in polyps, can decrease the incidence of small intestinal cancers.

There are no established primary preventive measures to prohibit developing small intestinal cancers. However, some measures for primary prevention of small intestine cancer include life style changes for modifiable risk factors. These are as follows:
