Colon Cancer

Colorectal cancer, commonly known as bowel cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, but it is more common in developed countries. Its symptoms usually are rectal bleeding and anaemia associated with weight loss and changes in bowel habits.

Colorectal Cancer initially starts in the lining of the bowel and if left untreated, can grow into the muscle layers underneath, and then through the bowel wall. Cancers that are confined within the wall of the colon are often curable with surgery. In more advanced stages Chemotherapy is helpful in extending the person life and improving quality of life.

RISK FACTORS–You are likely to have a higher risk for colon cancer if you :

  • Are older than 60
  • Are African American of eastern European descent
  • Eat a diet high in red or processed meats
  • Have cancer elsewhere in the body
  • Have colorectal polyps
  • Have inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis)
  • Have a family history of colon cancer
  • Have a personal history of breast cancerGet Estimate

How is Colon Cancer Diagnosed?
Colonoscopy
  • Colonoscopy: An endoscope is inserted into the rectum and advanced through the colon through this the doctor can examine the entire colon.
  • Diagnosis is Confirmed with a Colon Biopsy – Stage of disease is confirmed by pathologists and imaging tests, such as computerized tomography (CT or CAT) scans.
  • Endoscopic Ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may also be used to stage rectal cancer.
  • Sigmoidoscopy : In this an endoscope is inserted in the rectum and moved through the left side of the colon. It cannot be used to view the middle and right sides of the colon.
  • Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) : along with complete blood count (CBC) to check for anemia and CT, MRI or PET scans of the abdomen and pelvic area.

Treatment Options Available for Colon Cancer at Top Cancer Hospitals in India

Minimal Invasive Laparoscopic Colon Cancer Surgery
Minimal Invasive Laparoscopic Colon Cancer Surgery
  • The surgeon enters the abdomen by placing a canula (a narrow tube like instrument) into the abdomen (belly) through a small incision (½ — ¼ inch).
  • Carbon Dioxide gas is pumped into the abdomen through the port (cannula) to puff-up or inflate the belly, making working room for the surgeon.
  • A laparoscope (a tiny telescope connected to a video camera) is placed through the canula, and allows the surgeon to see a magnified lighted view of the internal organs on a TV monitor.
  • 2 to 4 other canulas are inserted to allow use of special instruments to work inside the abdominal cavity (belly).
  • If a portion of the colon is removed, one of the small canula incisions is slightly enlarged to permit removal of the tissue.Get Estimate

Other Modalities for Colon Cancer Treatment Available at our Hospitals in India

Other Modalities for Colon Cancer TreatmentColectomy – Large bowel resection is surgery to remove all or part of your large bowel. This surgery is also called colectomy. The large bowel is also called the large intestine or colon. Removal of the entire colon and the rectum is called a proctocolectomy. Removal of part or all of the colon but not the rectum is called subtotal colectomy.

Chemotherapy – Almost all patients with stage III colon cancer should receive chemotherapy after surgery for approximately 6 – 8 months. The chemotherapy drug 5-fluorouracil has been shown to increase the chance of a cure in certain patients. Chemotherapy is also used to improve symptoms and prolong survival in patients with stage IV colon cancer.

Radiofrequency Ablation for Metastatic Colorectal Cancer – Radiofrequency ablation leverages the power of microwave technology to help destroy colorectal cancer that has spread to the liver, the most common site to which the disease can spread. Radiofrequency ablation helps the surgeons and radiologists at Cancer Treatment Centers of America eliminate small liver tumors, often without the risks and discomfort associated with traditional surgery. Radiofrequency ablation is also less invasive and less painful.

Cancer is a class of diseases characterized by out-of-control cell growth, and colon cancer forms when this uncontrolled cell growth initiates with cells in the large intestine. Most colon cancers originate from small, noncancerous (benign) tumors called adenomatous polyps that form on the inner walls of the large intestine. Some of these polyps may grow into malignant colon cancers over time if they are not removed during colonoscopy. Colon cancer cells will invade and damage healthy tissue that is near the tumor causing many complications.Get Estimate


Ms Cheryl Campbell from USA shares her experience of travelling to India for Medical Treatment.

My husband and I have experience of hospitals both in the US and UK. Finding safemedtrip.com has been a boon. The hospital in India is overall the very best we have experienced. The level of care is exceptional.

Every member of staff works as a dedicated member of a team to assist recovery. We were somewhat nervous about coming to India as we have never visited before, but we were never left unsure or uncomfortable about anything from the time we were picked up at the airport. The medical facilities and the room facilities were equally excellent. We informed about every step which made us feel in control of our situation. The staff was extremely forthcoming and communicative. A special word of thanks, to the Physiotherapist, who worked hard and motivated me to get back on my feet again without any pain. Were any of our family to need surgery again, with time to make a choice we would come here.Refer a PatientRefer a Patient
