Can I take egg white daily if I have colon cancer? Or any vegetables etc which I can't take and what foods to avoid.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user yes you may preferably take country fowl egg that would be better as other types of eggs may contain antibiotics and other contaminants that might be harmful to you. Veggies you can shift to organic ones that would be better for you. Thanks!

Hello lybrate-user, possibly you are worrying unnecessarily, it doesn't mean you get colon cancer if you see blood per rectum. There are many other reasons why you see blood while passing stools or soon after passing stools, that may be related to anorectal disorders like fissures, piles, or fistula. As of now, there is no need to panic about it, you can consult me so that I will clarify your doubts.

Sir madam
yesterday I have done colonoscopy procedure. Aur cea b kiya 2.68 aya caecum
single polypoidal mass occludin...
Biopsy suggestive of cancer, but we need to know what type of cancer it is. As treatment depends on type of cancer in caecum. Need to do cect abdomen and thorax/pet ct depending on feasibility and affordability for staging purpose (pet ct is not mandatory but helpful). Do not worry. Two thing are favoring good prognosis, first its polypoidal mass and cea is less than 4 ; both are good prognostic factors. If cect/pet ct shows no metastasis (not spreading to other parts), less likely as per details, its curable cancer. Consult any qualified oncologist for multidisciplinary tumour board discussion and proper planing of treatment. All the best, take care.

If you feels bleeding sometimes, its ok it may be due to hard stool which tears anal wall or sometimes loose motions may lead to anal dark red bleeding. In colon cancer bleeding do persist with frequent motions with dark clotted blood. So just don't worry and go through a regular check from a qualified piles specialist doctor.

My father was in advance stage in Stomach Cancer After taking three cycle of chemo, he was completely bed ridden. It took three month to recover him from the chemo effect. We planned for surgery In Feb. 2018, During surgery, it had found that the cancer had been spread through out the abdomen. The surgeons could not perform the surgery and closed it. The onco-surgeons suggested for chemotherapy. Again, we consulted medical oncologist, they told us it can not be given any chemo medicine. As per oncologist any type of feeding is not possible due weak clinical conditions. Now he is in home with normal saline and multivitamin. He is takings Ondem and Tranexa (through IV). Till his vomiting and bleeding is not under control. He is taking Celemin 10 plus (parental Nutrient) in every week. But, till his vomiting and black stool (like black water) is not under control. Now he is very weak. He can not move. All these salines are given to him through a home nursing. Please advise shall we continue these medicines in everyday.

Dear lybrate-user I can understand your father is suffering from advanced stage of cancer. At this time surgery or chemo is not an option. He should be given medicines for pain relief only so that this final period is pain free. If bleeding continues that small amount of radiotherapy to stop bleeding can be tried which is helpful to small percentage of people Kindly consult your doctor for that.
