    Frequently Asked Questions

    The colon is the digestive system's final segment. Colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer, begins in the large intestine and spreads across the body (colon)

    The chances of being affected by colon cancer are higher for older people, but it can affect anybody at any age. It typically starts as polyps, which are tiny, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells that grow inside the colon. Any of these polyps can develop into colon cancer over the period.

    Small polyps can produce few symptoms if there are any. Therefore, doctors recommend regular monitoring tests to help prevent colon cancer by identifying and removing polyps before they turn cancerous.

    If colon cancer grows, various therapies, including surgery, radiation treatment, and drug treatments such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy, can monitor it. Colorectal cancer is another name for colon cancer, which blends colon cancer with rectal cancer, which starts in the rectum.

    In the initial stages of colorectal cancer, you do not have any signs. It is the reason why routine screenings, such as a colonoscopy, are critical for detecting cancer or precancerous disorders in the colon or rectum as soon as possible, well before symptoms occur.

    The following symptoms can appear if you are suffering from the colon or rectal cancer:

    • Changes in bowel habits
    • Blood in or on stools
    • Rectum bruising (bright red)
    • Diarrhoea
    • Unusually narrow stools
    • Consistent stomach pains, bloating, fullness, or cramps
    • Weight loss that is unexplained and unintended
    • Tiredness
    • Deficiency
    • Vomiting

    If colorectal cancer grows, additional clinical signs can appear in different ways or various areas of the body over time. Loss of blood from the stool, for example, will gradually reduce the number of red blood cells in the body, resulting in anaemia, which can also be the earliest indicator of colon cancer detected through a blood test.

    Likewise, colorectal cancer that has spread from the digestive system to several other organs and tissues may cause many health problems depending on where it has spread. If the disease progresses to your liver, it can cause swelling and eyes and skin yellowing (jaundice). If it expands to the lungs, it can make breathing difficult.

    After the initial diagnosis, cancer staging is performed, which can include a variety of tests. Each examination will assist your doctor in determining how much of your body has been affected by cancer. After reviewing the situation, the doctor will recommend a course of treatment.

    Stage 0 Colon Cancer:
    Colon cancer is classified as stage 0 when irregular cells are discovered in the colon's wall or mucosa. It's also known as carcinoma in situ.

    Stage 1 Colon Cancer:
    Stage 1 colon cancer is described as cancer that has spread to the mucosa and submucosa. The submucosa, which lies underneath the mucosa, is the surface of the large intestine. In stage 1 colon cancer, malignant cells may have only infected the deeper muscle layer of the colon wall; they have not, however, spread beyond the colon.

    Stage 2 Colon Cancer
    Stage 2 colon cancer occurs when the infection spreads beyond the colon wall but not to the lymph nodes. There are three phases to this disease.

    • 2A Phase: Cancer has spread to the serosa, or outer colon wall, but has not progressed further.
    • 2B Phase: cancer has spread beyond the serosa but not to surrounding organs.
    • 2C Phase: The serosa and nearby organs have been affected by cancer.

    Stage 3 Colon Cancer:
    Stage 3 colon cancer is described as cancer spread beyond the colon lining and has spread to the lymph nodes. Although the lymph nodes are damaged at this point, the disease has not spread to other systems in the body. 3A, 3B, and 3C are the three stages that make up this period. The location of cancer in these groups is determined by a complex mixture of the layers of the colon wall that have been damaged and the number of lymph nodes that have been targeted.

    Stage 4 Colon Cancer:
    The disease has expanded to other parts of the body via the blood and lymph nodes in this stage of colon cancer.

    If you suspect you have colon cancer, look for the best colon cancer treatment hospitals in India that can diagnose and treat your condition. You may also consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, one of the top oncologists in India.

    Treatment for colorectal cancer in India and any other country is dependent on a variety of factors. Your doctor will develop a care plan based on your general health and the level of your colorectal cancer.

    Surgery

    Your surgeon may be able to remove cancerous polyps by operation in the initial stages of colon cancer. If the polyp hasn't stuck to the bowel wall, the prognosis is likely to be good.

    Your surgeon may have to remove a part of your colon or rectum, as well as any nearby lymph nodes, if your cancer has spread through your bowel walls. They will reattach the remaining healthy part of the colon to the rectum if at all necessary.

    If this isn't feasible, you may need a colostomy. It entails cutting a hole in the abdominal wall to allow waste to pass through. It is possible to have a colostomy that is either temporary or permanent.

    If you are looking for colorectal cancer treatment in India, you may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, one of the best cancer surgeons.

    Chemotherapy

    It is a treatment that uses drugs to kill cancer cells. It is often used following surgery by people with colorectal cancer, to remove any remaining cancerous cells. Chemotherapy can also slow the progression of tumours.

    Colorectal cancer is treated with chemotherapy drugs prescribed based on the patient's health and cancer progression. Some of them include

    • Capecitabine
    • Fluorouracil
    • Oxaliplatin (Eloxatin)
    • Irinotecan (Camptosar)

    Chemotherapy also has side effects that include additional treatment to manage. While colon cancer treatment cost in India is believed to be high, many oncologists and hospitals offer affordable prices that you can consider.

    Radiation

    Pre and post-surgery radiation use an intense ray of energy identical to the one used in X-rays to target and kill cancerous cells. Chemotherapy is also combined with radiation therapy.

    Other medications

    Immunotherapies and targeted therapies can also be suggested. The FDA or Food and Drug Administration has approved the following medicines to treat colorectal cancer:

    • Bevacizumab (Avastin)
    • Ramucirumab (Cyramza)
    • Ziv-aflibercept (Zaltrap)
    • Cetuximab (Erbitux)
    • Panitumumab (Vectibix)
    • Regorafenib (Stivarga)
    • Pembrolizumab (Keytruda)
    • Nivolumab (Opdivo)
    • Ipilimumab (Yervoy)

    They can help people with metastatic colorectal cancer, which has spread across different areas of the body, and other therapies haven't worked. If your cancer has progressed and is not responding to other treatment, you can benefit by consulting at one of the best hospitals for colon cancer treatment in India. Alternatively, you may also consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, who is widely regarded as one of the best oncologists to treat colon cancer.
