The oncologists discuss what happens during colon cancer treatment

Lewisville, TX, Jan 17, 2018 - Colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second in terms of the cancers that cause death in the U.S. It is among the most diagnosed cancer type among men and women in the country. It doesn’t usually show symptoms during its early development stages, which makes it necessary for people aged 50 or older to visit a quality cancer care facility in Texas for screening.

“Over the years, we have received colon cancer patients at our clinics,” explain the oncologists. “We provide individualized and compassionate patient care in our state-of-the-art facility where patients and their families find a warm and welcoming environment.”

When patients visit a cancer care center for colon cancer treatment, they go through the following procedure:

•    Screening – Colonoscopies are usually performed by a gastroenterologist. Colon cancer usually starts with the development of small clumps commonly known as polyps. The polyps are of two types: non-cancerous and pre-cancerous. Screenings are essential because polyps do not usually have symptoms associated with them. Therefore, the doctor examines any type of polyps discovered for cancer. If the person has colon cancer, certain symptoms will follow - abdominal pain, cramping, blood in stool and more. Yearly screenings are recommended starting at 50 years. However, in the presence of risk factors such as smoking, lack of exercise, and age, earlier screenings are recommended.

•    Diagnosis and treatment – Regular screenings may help the doctor to detect colon cancer and establish its stage. The colon cancer can either be at stage 0, where it’s contained in the colon’s inner layer, or up to stage 4, where the disease has spread to other parts of the body. The stage of the colon cancer will guide the physician on which treatment method to administer.

“Colon cancer may not easily show symptoms at first, which is why you should have a screening at least once a year. But if you’re pre-disposed to risk factors such as smoking, lack of exercise, or inflammations in the intestines, you should have screenings at an earlier age based on your doctor’s advice.” say the oncologists. “If cancer is detected, the oncologist willdetermine the stage of the disease.The treatment will be determined based on the stage, which can be surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or a combination of various treatments.”
