** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **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** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **
  • Have a personal history of breast cancer

How is for Colon Cancer diagnosed?

  • ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **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 interested 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 ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **anemia and CT , MRI or PET scans of the abdomen, pelvic area

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

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.

Other Modalities for Colon Cancer treatment available at our hospitals in India

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **Colectomy - 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.

Mr. Ibrahim Aliyu,

Nigeria

"Good day, I was attendant to your patient Mr. Ibrahim Aliyu , i just want to give a little feedback on the care we received.I must say we have been overwhelmed by the level of care for details from your hospital!

The moment we stepped out of the airport terminal, the hospital pickup car and protocol officer was waiting for us. We were checked in almost immediately when we got to the hospital seeing as we were weary from the long-haul travel to get to India. You guys had everything on tap!

Organising for us to get a local sim card so we could communicate with home immediately, having very adequately accommodated me the attendant as well...boarding, feeding et al!

I was able to be right there with the patient through it all comfortably. Plus the cafes and eateries downstairs...brilliant touch!We also had hospital recommended and organised, discounted hotel accommodation upon discharge.We thank God his surgery went very well. The team work between specialists to make sure everything before they would go on with scheduled surgery.All in all SafeMedTrip by my standards tops...and i would recommend it in a heartbeat!"
