Suriname can be characterized as a low-risk country for gastrointestinal malignancies. The most common histotypes were colorectal, stomach, and primary liver cancer. Furthermore, most gastrointestinal neoplasms were as common in men as in women, occurred more often at older than at younger age, and manifested more frequently in Creoles than in Hindustanis and Javanese. The main exception was primary liver cancer that was more common in males and in Javanese. Increased efforts should be dedicated to avoid the risk factors associated with gastrointestinal tract cancers.
