More About Colon Cancer Treatment

Types and Procedures of Colon Cancer Treatment

There are several types of treatment available for the treatment of colon cancer. Some of the treatment methods are used widely in clinical settings, whereas some of them are undergoing clinical trials. The choice of treatment will depend on the following options:

  • The stage of colon cancer

  •  If the cancer has recurred

  • The general health of the patient

The primary treatment methods opted for treating colon cancer are discussed below:

  • Surgery: In surgery, the cancer cells are removed from the body with the help of an operation. This is most commonly used among all the stages of cancer. In situations where the cancer is discovered in an early stage, the tumour could also be removed with the help of a colonoscope. But in most cases, surgery is necessary. Some of the options available for colon cancer surgery are:

  • Bowel Diversion Surgery

  • Cryosurgery

  • Radiofrequency Ablation

  • Laparoscopic Colectomy

  • Polypectomy

  • Chemotherapy: In chemotherapy, the treatment is done with the help of drugs which aim to curb the cancer cells’ growth. It can either be done by not letting them multiply or by killing them. In Chemotherapy, the drugs can be either injected to the muscles, veins, or even administered through the mouth. The drugs gradually come in contact with the blood stream and finally to the cancer cells present in the large intestine. This is called systemic chemotherapy. In case of regional chemotherapy, the drugs are placed directly in an organ, body cavity, or cerebrospinal fluid.


  • Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy makes use of powerful energy sources like X-rays for killing the cancer cells that might not get removed at the time of surgery. It can also be used for shrinking the size of the tumours before conducting an operation to let the surgical removal easier. It is significantly helpful in relieving symptoms related to rectal and colon cancer.


  • Targeted Therapy: In this method, the cancer-specific genes, tissue environment, or proteins are targeted that are responsible for letting the cancer grow as well as survive. In the procedure, the spread and growth of the cancer cells are blocked which ultimately limits the damage caused to the healthy cells.

Diagnosis of Colon Cancer Treatment

Screening tests help in understanding the type of cancer and polyps present in the large intestine before the symptoms start showing up evidently. If polyps are detected and removed in time, it will prevent the occurrence of colon cancer. The disease can also be rectified if detected at an early stage. Some of the tests the doctor might conduct on the patient to diagnose colon cancer are:

  • A complete family, medical, and drug history

  • Digital rectal exam: A routine physical examination also incorporates a rectal exam. Here, a lubricated, gloved finger is inserted in the rectum for feeling the abnormal segments.

  • Sigmoidoscopy: A lighted tube known as a sigmoidoscope is used for checking the colon’s lower part and rectum. If there is an evidence of polyps, the doctor will remove it. This procedure is termed as polypectomy.

  • Virtual colonoscopy: This is also a method applied for screening which is currently undergoing clinical trials.

  • Double-contrast barium enema: An enema is provided along with barium solution. Air is blown into the rectum after which several x-ray images are taken of the rectum and colon. Barium as well as the air is helpful in showing the condition of the rectum and colon in pictures. Tumours and polyps can be spotted in these pictures.

  •  Colonoscopy: A colonoscope which appears to be long, lighted tube is used for examining the rectum and colon. If polyps are found, they are removed by the doctor.

  • Faecal occult blood test (FOBT): FOBT will be able to detect blood in the stool as some polyps and cancers bleed. If there is blood in the stool, other tests also need to be conducted to figure out the blood’s source. Haemorrhoids can also result in the presence of blood in the stool.
