Surgery is the main treatment for early colorectal cancer in India. Often, the piece of the colon or rectum with the tumor is removed and the ends are sewn back together. Surgeries using this method go by different names, such as colectomy, segmental resection, low anterior resection, and proctectomy with colo-anal anastomosis. Best results in colon cancer surgery are achieved if the treatment commences early and surgical removal of the cancerous part gives great results. Colon Cancer has a good survival rate if the detection is done at an early stage.
About 96% of colorectal cancers that are treated in India are adenocarcinomas. These cancers start in cells that make mucus to lubricate the inside of the colon and rectum. Generally the colorectal cancer surgery is followed by a session of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
Look for the following symptoms that may be a warning sign for colorectal cancer:
A persistent change in your bowel habits, including diarrhea or constipation
Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool
Persistent abdominal discomfort, such as cramps, gas or pain
A feeling that your bowel doesn't empty completely
Weakness or fatigue
Unexplained weight loss
A colonoscopy along with blood tests and MRCP would be the primary diagnostic investigations that may be used to diagnose colorectal cancer. A surgery to remove the affected tissue is performed as a part of treatment to treat colorectal or colon cancer in India if the cancer is localized and has not spread to other areas. The surgery may be followed by chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
