Colon Cancer Treatment in Pune

Colon cancer is cancer of the large intestine (colon), which is the final part of your digestive tract. Most cases of colon cancer begin as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps can become colon cancers.

What Are the Symptoms of Colon Cancer (large bowel)?

  • constipation or a variation in the consistency of your stool, that lasts longer than 4 weeks
  • Weakness or tiredness
  • Blood in your stool
  • Tenacious gastric discomforts, such as cramps, gas or pain
  • A feeling that your bowel doesn’t empty fully
  • Unexplained weight loss

Causes

In most cases, it’s not clear what makes colon cancer. Surgeons know that colon cancer occurs when healthy cells in the colon produce errors in their genetic blueprint, the DNA.

Healthy cells develop and distribute in a correct way to keep your body performing normally. But when a cell’s DNA is destroyed and becomes cancerous, cells continue to divide — even when new cells aren’t required. As the cells expand, they form a tumor.

With time, the cancer cells can grow to invade and destroy normal tissue nearby. And cancerous cells can travel to other parts of the body to form deposits there (metastasis).

Treatment

  • Removing polyps during a colonoscopy
  • Endoscopic mucosal resection
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Partial colectomy
  • Surgery to create a way for waste to leave your body
  • Lymph node removal
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy

Diagnosis

  • Using a scope to examine the inside of your colon. Colonoscopy uses a long, flexible and slender tube attached to a video camera and monitor to view your entire colon and rectum. If any suspicious areas are found, your doctor can pass surgical tools through the tube to take tissue samples (biopsies) for analysis and remove polyps.
  • Blood tests.No blood test can tell you if you have colon cancer. But your doctor may test your blood for clues about your overall health, such as kidney and liver function tests. Your doctor may also test your blood for a chemical sometimes produced by colon cancers (carcinoembryonic antigen or CEA). Tracked over time, the level of CEA in your blood may help your doctor understand your prognosis and whether your cancer is responding to treatment.
