In the last few years, we have faced many challenges in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers. Starting from diagnosis, moving forward with new surgical techniques, and finishing with the most innovative medical therapies, the management of these tumors has changed profoundly. Moreover, the development of translational oncology nowadays allows a personalized treatment, based on molecular profiling and genetic tools. This Special Issue will focus upon the key innovative aspects in the diagnosis and the surgical and oncological treatment of gastrointestinal cancers.
