TOP clinics for colon cancer treatment and diagnostics

We`ve found 50 specialized hospitals for treatment of colon cancer

Colon Cancer Treatment

Treatment for colon cancer depends on its stage but always includes surgery. To obtain a comprehensive diagnosis patients go through obligatory tests - colonoscopy with biopsy and PET-CT at the later stages.

The treatment regimen is developed individually for each patient and depends on the tumor size, its location, and how far cancer has spread. At stages 1 and 2 common treatments include surgery to remove the cancer. On stage 3, surgery is supplemented with chemo- and radiotherapy. Treatment of 4 stage bowel cancer is aimed at prolonging and improving the quality of a patient’s life. Supportive therapy and palliative techniques are applied.

Colon cancer

Colon cancer, also known as bowel cancer, is a disease in which malignant cells are formed in the tissues of the colon. Most cancers are adenocarcinomas because the colon has numerous glands within the tissue. Colon cancer often begins as a noncancerous polyp - benign clump of cells. Polyps are common in people older than 50 years of age. Some polyps can be transformed into cancer over time. Finding and removing polyps in time can prevent colorectal cancer.

Signs of colon cancer include blood in the stool or a change in bowel habits, constipation, frequent vomiting and weight loss for no apparent reason.

Difference between colorectal and colon cancer

Colorectal cancer is a name frequently used in regard to colon and rectal cancer. Some patients believe it is the same thing. Both the colon and the rectum are parts of the large intestine, which is the lower part of the body’s digestive system. They do share distinct similarities, particularly in the way they manifest (symptoms, risk factors, genetics). But there are significant differences in anatomy, type of surgery, likelihood of a permanent colostomy, postoperative complications. Rectal cancer is more difficult to cure, with a course of radiation therapy and chemotherapy which is not commonly used for colon cancer especially for stage 1 disease.

Diagnostics of colon cancer

Screening tests for colon cancer:

  1. Immunochemical fecal occult blood test.
    High-sensitivity fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) checks for tiny amounts of blood in stool (feces) because colon cancer can bleed.
  2. Sigmoidoscopy.
    It is when the rectum and sigmoid colon are examined using a sigmoidoscope, a flexible lighted tube with a lens for viewing and a tool for removing tissue.
  3. Standard (optical) colonoscopy.
    In this test, the rectum and entire colon are examined using a colonoscope, a flexible lighted tube with a lens for viewing and a tool for removing tissue. If a polyp or tumor is found during this procedure, a biopsy or polypectomy may be performed.
  4. Virtual colonoscopy.
    Computed tomographic (CT) colonography. This screening method uses x-ray to produce a series of images of the colon and the rectum from outside the body.
  5. Barium enema.
    Lower GI series - series of x-rays of the lower gastrointestinal tract after a liquid containing barium is put into the rectum. Barium enema detects only about 30%–50% of cancers that can be found by colonoscopy, so nowadays it is rarely used as a colon cancer screening test.

Biopsy : The removal of cells or tissues so they can be examined under a microscope to check for signs of cancer.

After colon cancer has been diagnosed, MRI and/or PET-CT scan are applied to find out if cancer cells have spread within the colon or to other parts of the body. Colon cancer can affect other parts of the body, such as the liver and lungs.

Colon cancer surgery

Surgery is the most common treatment for all stages of colon cancer. A doctor may remove cancer using one of the following types of surgery:

  • Polypectomy - excision of a polyp.
  • Local excision is performed if cancer is found at a very early stage. In this case surgery is made through the rectum. This is called a Trans-Anal Excision.
  • Surgery for colon cancer with anastomosis (sewing the healthy parts of the colon together). If cancer is larger, a doctor performs a partial colectomy (removing cancer and a small amount of healthy tissue around it) with lymph nodes removal.
  • Resection of the colon with colostomy: If a doctor is not able to sew the 2 ends of the colon back together, a stoma (an opening) is made on the outside of the body. Sometimes the colostomy is needed only until the lower colon is healed, and then it can be reversed. If a surgeon needs to remove the entire lower colon the colostomy may be permanent.

Cost of colon resection surgery

Average cost of colorectal surgery depends on bowel cancer stage, its location and the country a patient chooses to go to treat the disease.

  • Сost of colon surgery in India is the most affordable one $11,000- $16,000
  • in Turkey it will be from $15,000 to $18,000 if no additional interventions needed
  • in Israel$16,000 - $22,000 at state clinics
  • in Germany and Spain the cost will be — €25,000 - €30,000

It is important to know that German clinics accept foreign patients on deposit basis: it is necessary to transfer money for the procedures on clinic's account before the treatment beginning.

Colon cancer surgery prognosis

The prognosis (chance of recovery) and the type of surgery depend on the following:

  • the stage of cancer (whether cancer is in the tissue of the colon or has spread to lymph nodes or other organs in the body);
  • whether the cancer has damaged the colon wall (made a hole in it);
  • if there are any cancer cells left after surgery;
  • in case cancer has recurred;
  • the patient’s general health and age.

The prognosis also depends on the blood levels of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) before treatment begins. CEA is a substance in the blood that may be increased if a patient has cancer.

Colon cancer treatment side effects

The side effects of colon cancer treatment depend on the type of treatment and may be different for each person. Most frequent side effects of colon cancer are detected after surgery and chemotherapy.

One of the common side effects of colon cancer surgery is constipation or diarrhea, bleeding, infection. People who have a colostomy may have irritation of the skin around the stoma.

The side effects of colon cancer chemotherapy depend mainly on the specific drugs and their dose. Common side effects usually are: weakness, hair loss. vomiting, bruising.

Survival rate for colon cancer

Survival rate for colon cancer is 65%. The prognosis depends on stage of colon cancer:

  • in case of localized colon cancer (confined to primary site) - 90%;
  • if tumor spread to regional lymph nodes - 71%;
  • when cancer has metastasis - 14%.

There are differences between cancers that originate on the right side of the colon (ascending colon) and those that arise on the left (descending colon, sigmoid colon, rectum) because of their tissue (cell structure). Survival rates for left-sided cancers tend to be better than those of the right.
