MALIGNANT TUMORS OF DIGESTIVE ORGANS AND LIVER METASTASES AT THE TIME OF DIAGNOSIS
Abstract Aim: Malignant tumors localized in the digestive tract have a tendency to local growth and invasion with lymph node metastasis. Distant metastases through blood with prevalent liver location are detected late in disease progression, in an advanced stage, when therapeutic possibilities are often limited to palliative therapy.
Material and methods: The study included a series of patients with liver metastases admitted to the Center of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Iasi between January 1 and October 10, for the identification of primitive tumor. The patients were metastatic cancer of the liver treatment by endoscopy, imaging, laboratory tests including tumor markers.

Males were most affected, regardless of primitive tumor. Conclusions: Although diagnostic and therapeutic methods have made remarkable progress in recent years, these tumors, by their frequency and advanced stage at diagnosis, remain both an oncologic and public health problem mainly due to the limitations of curative treatment.
