Answer ( You need to be a premium member to see this) 

GIST are usually found in the stomach (40% to 60%), small intestine (30%), and colon (15%). Clinically they appear  in patients older than 50 years.

They generally have an equal male-to-female ratio or a slight male predominance.

They are rarely associated with familial syndromes such as GISTparaganglioma syndrome (Carney triad), neurofibromatosis 1, and von Hippel-Lindau disease, but most develop de novo.
