Colorectal Cancer - 5 Common Surgical Treatments Available for it

Colorectal Cancer - 5 Common Surgical Treatments Available for it

Colorectal cancer, also known as colon cancer or bowel cancer; is the occurrence of cancer in the colon and the rectum region. Colorectal cancer may either be malignant or benign, the former spreads to other areas of the body whereas, the latter stays confined to its place. It is characterized by an abnormal growth of cells in the rectum or the colon.

The various surgical treatment options for colorectal cancer are:

1. Right colectomy: This procedure involves removal of the right part of the colon. A part of the small intestine, which is attached to the right side of the colon, known as ileum, is also removed.

2. Partial colectomy: In partial colectomy, only a portion of the colon that has been affected by cancer is removed. The remaining parts are fused together in a process called ‘Anastomosis’. This procedure does not cause much change in your bowel habits.

3. Total abdominal colectomy: In this procedure, the large intestine is removed from the body.

4. Abdominoperineal resection: Abdominoperineal resection involves removing the rectum, anus and the sigmoid colon (part of the intestine that leads to the rectum).

5. Total proctocolectomy: This is an extensive procedure wherein, both the colon and the rectum are removed. If the anus is weak or damaged, then it needs to be removed as well.

Apart from these procedures, there are other surgical procedures that complement the above procedures, they are:

1. Fecal diversion: This is a procedure where an opening is formed between the small intestine and the skin’s surface so that it facilitates the healing process.

2. K pouch: The K pouch also called continent ileostomy is a pouch, which is attached to the anus so that feces can be passed normally. The K pouch contains nipple valve that prevents leakage; it is emptied by inserting a catheter in the stoma.

3. Stomas: A stoma is an opening on the skin of the bowel. This is done when the normal route of bowel is disturbed after a surgery.

I am suffering from fibroadenoma since a long time but I have been taking homeopathy medicine since last six months. The time I take medicine my tumour is in small size but if I stop taking it, my tumour grows. What should I do to remove the tumour completely except having a surgery?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Dear there is no other option than getting it removed surgically for complete relief. There is always a chance given your age and description that the lump may subside by itself over a period of time (usually years). But it also possible that it may not regress on its own. If it is causing you distress, surgical removal is ideal.

I am 28 years old women. Before 4 years I took a surgery for lump on my right breast. At the same time a tiny lumps on my left breast too. I took needle biopsy to the both breast at that time. The result is normal. The biopsy result of right breast is also normal. After 6 months of surgery I got married and delivers a child before our first anniversary. My left breast lump is become larger during this period. Am i suspect the left breast lump cancer. I am afraid to a medical examine. Please give me a clarification.

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology
Oncologist,
Hi, it is normal for benign breast lumps to enlarge rapidly during pregnancy. They usually don't turn into cancer. They enlarge secondary to the hormonal changes durimg that time and may regress back later. But if you still have a large persistent lump, please do consult a surgeon in person as a clinical examination will reveal a lot more. And if needed you can get it removed. Most importantly, your doubt regardin cancer will be clarified. Hope his helps. Take care.

Is cancer curable or not or some symptoms of cancer what precautions should one take to cure or saty away from cancer.

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Dear sir cancer cure depends on biology of disease and stage of presentation. Early disease is better responsive than late diagnosis. Cancer presents as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, altered bowel habits, difficulty in swallowing, change in bowelor bladder habits, change in voice etc depending on organ affected. One should stay away from any kind of carcinogenic substance like tobacco alcohol pollution pesticides radiation exposure industrial affluent etc and go for regular health screening for early diagnosis.

It is not due to migraine/ cancer , it is just the way God has made you, no body has equal organs on both sides.

I had a pimple kind of thing on my breast I itched it and blood came out of it! Is that symbol of breast cancer?
Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. I would advise to not itch or irritate the same for it may get infected, and worsen the issue. You can clean the same with warm water, and apply any antiseptic ointment containing aloe vera. Should there be any pain, you may apply an alternating heat and cold treatment for couple of minutes that may alleviate it. However, should it not heal still or you notice more of such pimples coming up or its color as being significantly different than the usual breast skin color or any kind of severe pain/ inflammation etc all, you should visit your OB/ GYN right away for a clinical evaluation and traction thereof. Simultaneously, keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, and stay well hydrated. You can take tomato soup to which fresh herbs like garlic, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, coriander leaves and oregano has been added, once daily. Your doc shall be able to advise further on, in particular, once he/ she gets to clinically examine you in person. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

COMPLEX THICK WALLED OVARIAN CYST.
Please I was diagnose with a complex thick walled ovarian cyst. Could this be ovar...
Yes, this may have cancer. Please get a ca 125 and cect abdomen and pelvis and consult a surgical oncologist or gynaec surgeon at the earliest. You need to get that ovary removed to assess the exact nature of that cyst. Please get operated at a place, with frozen section facility, so that a decision may be taken during the surgery. If it is cancer and you have completed your family, then you may need to get both ovaries and uterus removed, alongwith surgical staging for ovarian cancer.

It must be difficult for you. You should do your gargles regularly with hexidine mouth wash. And there are many artificial saliva sprays available.

Respected lybrate-user dear you have to drag your husband's more time in foreplay before sex which is of utmost importance by variety of acts you can do this & that will help you out in a more better sex life dear. So far as only looking to other ladies is concerned is not going to be changed by your thinking or telling and even if you tell he may take it in different way & he will specifically see in your absence so don't waste mind in thinking that just think more how you can be more romantic with him to attract him passionately may be you require some crazy acts not done before go ahead for that & cherish your sex life as it does not end up only with loose breasts ok thanks regards welcome for any further queries.

Gynaecomastia is normal sometimes in puberty,but persistence of abnormal breast tissue in adult male can be due to a lot of clinical conditions klienfelter syndrome,lymphomas,luekemias,estrogen excess,and side effects of drugs like digitalis,inh,spiranolactone,cimetidine,ranitidine,oestrogens.You need examination by doctors and rule out any pathology,if everything is normal then liposuction can give excellent results.I have treated many patients successfully. www.plasticsurgeryindia.net

Reduce the Risk of Cancer - Get Tips!

We live in an age where every single individual, more or less, is exposed to the risk of cancer. It is probably an unfavorable lifestyle we lead that deprives us of good health. This might alarm many but considerable changes in lifestyle can help you realize cancer as a preventable disease. Cancer does not only make you undergo severe suffering but it also affects your friends and family. The pallor of misery spreads wider than you think.

  • Abstain from tobacco: Consuming raw tobacco or smoking tobacco can be equally detrimental to your health. Tobacco increases your chances of contracting the disease. As is known, passive smoking can also affect your health adversely. Tobacco can be the potential cause behind cancer of the mouth, throat, larynx, lungs, oral cavity and even the pancreas. It might harm your kidneys and cervix. It is upon you to quit tobacco at the earliest possible. One should also try and persuade friends and relatives to give up smoking.
  • Drink alcohol in moderation: Complete abstinence from alcohol might not be possible if you have already been ushered into your work- life. The society might require you to be an occasional drinker. It is important to drink in moderation. Crossing the limit can propel consequences as serious as cancer of the stomach, pancreas, liver and the heart.
  • A balanced and nutritious diet: Deciding on a plant- based diet or a Mediterranean diet can aid your fight against the risk of cancer. A Mediterranean diet will involve green leafy vegetables, lots of fresh fruits, whole grains, mixed nuts, legumes and also the use of extra- virgin olive oil. Fish can be a safe bet but red meat should be avoided. One must also try to avoid processed meat as they tend to make you prone to the risk of cancer.
  • Immunization: Hepatitis B and HPV or Human papilloma virus vaccines are extremely necessary to protect you against the sexually transmitted types of cancer.
  • Sun protection: Caring for your skin doesn't arise from vanity. Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent kinds of cancer; the chances of this disease can be restricted by remaining in shade especially during midday, by wearing covered clothes and by using a good sunscreen lotion repeatedly while outside.
  • Exercise diligently: Did you think it was okay to have weaker muscles and bulging layers of fat? If yes, you probably have grown numb to the inadequacies you face in result. Unchecked fat can lead to obesity which further complicates health conditions. Metabolic activity differs from person to person. Regular exercising can help regulate metabolism according to the needs of your body. Physical exercise protects you against the risk of breast and colon cancer. Moderate or vigorous physical activity for 150 to 75 minutes a week respectively can reduce the risk of cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a oncologist.
