Colon cancer is the cancer of the large intestine (colon/rectum), which is the final
part of your digestive tract. In most cases, colon cancer doctors in Hyderabad
describes that colon cancer begins as small, noncancerous (benign) clumps of cells
which is called adenomatous polyps. Over time some of these polyps can become colon
cancers. Polyps may be small and produce few, if any, symptoms. For this reason,
doctors for colon cancer treatment in Hyderabad recommend regular screening tests to
help prevent colon cancer by identifying and removing polyps before they turn into

How to Choose the Right

How healthy you are
The option you’d prefer
The most common treatments include:
Surgery. This is the way doctors treat most colon cancers. The best chance for a
cure is by removing the tumor completely. Usually, surgeons need to remove only
the part of your colon or rectum that has the tumor. Your surgeon may perform
the operation with a few small cuts in your belly (called laparoscopy) instead
of one long cut. You may have less pain and heal faster with this approach.
Ablation and Embolization . This type of treatment is an option for cancer that
has spread to the liver. Tumours can be removed without removing them. Sometimes
doctors use high-energy radio waves or electromagnetic microwaves to kill the
cancer. Or they may inject the tumor with alcohol or freeze it with a metal
probe. With embolization therapy, a substance is used to block blood flow to
cancer in the liver.
Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy drugs can destroy cancer cells or block them from
spreading throughout your body. You can take the medicines in pill form or
through an IV form. You can also get them in a blood vessel close to your tumor.
There are many types of these drugs. Some work better together, so you may take
two or more at the same time. You usually get the treatment for 2 or 4 weeks,
then take a break.
Radiation. This treatment uses high-energy waves to destroy cancer cells. You
might have it before or after surgery to shrink the tumor or stop it from coming
