What is Colon Cancer?

Colon cancer, also known as colorectal carcinoma/cancer (CRC), is a type of cancer that involves the large intestine and/or rectum (end of the colon) or the inner wall of the colon or rectum. The word cancer is used to describe abnormal growths of cells that can spread from one part of the body to another. In colon cancer, these abnormal growths may occur in the colon or rectum. Risk factors for colon cancer include older age, a family history of colon cancer, a personal history of colorectal polyps, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and certain health conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease. Common symptoms of colon cancer include changes in bowel habits, such as constipation, diarrhoea, or a change in the consistency of your stool; blood in the stool; abdominal pain; weakness or fatigue; and unexplained weight loss. Treatment for colon cancer depends on the stage of the cancer and may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy.

Chemotherapy Procedures and Benefits

Generally, chemotherapy can be given in two conditions:

1.To treat cancer and control it recurrence:
Chemotherapy treats cancer by destroying rapidly growing cells which is a characteristic of cancer cells. Here, chemotherapy aims to cure cancer completely and prevent the recurrence of cancer. In such cases, the administering chemotherapy is referred to as Curative Chemotherapy. Some cancers that are potentially treated and cured by chemotherapy are lymphomas, leukaemias, and testicular cancers.

2.To shrink the tumours and treat them effectively:
In the case of metastatic cancers (cancer that has spread to different parts the body), chemotherapy can no longer help to cure but is used to shrink the tumours. In such cases, the administering chemotherapy is referred to as Palliative Chemotherapy.

And the cost of chemo drugs varies widely from hundreds to lakhs depending on their efficacy. You can discuss with your doctor about the affordable chemo drugs for you

Colon cancer is a highly treatable form of cancer, and the prognosis depends on the individual’s diagnosis, stage and available treatments. In general, the five-year survival rate for people with localised colon cancer is 90%. However, many people with colon cancer live for much longer than five years, and some people may even be cured. It is important to note that the five-year survival rate is an estimate, not an absolute. It is possible for some people to live for many years after being diagnosed with colon cancer. The best way to determine the prognosis of an individual’s colon cancer is to speak with their doctor.

Stage 0 and stage 1 colon cancers are generally considered to be the most curable types of colon cancer. However, advanced-stage colon cancers can also be treated and life expectancy can be increased to some extent.

Depending on the type of treatment, patients may also experience changes in bowel habits, including needing to use the bathroom more frequently, as well as changes in appetite. Your doctor will provide follow-up care to monitor your progress and help manage any side effects. He or she will also discuss lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of recurrence and lower your chances of developing other cancers in the future.
