Colon Cancer Treatment Cost In South Africa

Whatsapp Chat Chat

Cancer of the large intestine is known as Colon Cancer. The colon is the last part of the digestive tract. Old age people are more susceptible to colon cancer.

It develops as a polyp or benign non-cancerous lump that grows into cancer.

Regular screening is advised to detect these polyps and remove them before developing further into cancerous growth.

Initial signs and symptoms may comprise blood in the stool, repeated changes in bowel habits, undefined weight loss, and a feeling that the bowel isn't completely empty.

For the treatment of colon cancer, we have many options. Surgery is required in the initial stage based on the cancer's location. It can be a Polypectomy, Endoscopic Mucosal Resection, or Laparoscopic removal of polyps.

However, in advanced cases, Partial Colectomy with lymph node dissection and sometimes an ostomy is done where a passage is created for passing stool.

Later on, Chemotherapy, Radiation therapy, Targeted Drug Therapy, and Immunotherapy are used as adjuvant treatments.

Palliative care is essential as the body has to accommodate after surgery.
