Most of GIST cases were very low-risk and low-risk. Male patients were more likely to have very low-risk and low-risk GISTs, whereas women were more likely to have high-risk GISTs (χ=2.4778, P=0.0132). Age at GIST diagnosis ranged from 31 to 82 years (58.69±9.90), but was not significantly associated with GIST risk (=−0.990, P=0.327). Most GISTs were located in the stomach. The size of tumors varied between 0.5 and 20 cm.
