Chemotherapy or radiation therapy for bowel cancer

Chemotherapy or radiation therapy? About 500 thousand patients die each year from this disease. Colon and rectal cancer is malignant colon tumours, the third most common. Besides, the life expectancy of patients with colon cancer is directly related to the degree of prevalence of the tumour process. Furthermore, chemotherapy for bowel cancer is always a course of treatment.

Despite the high mortality rate from colon cancer, the disease is treatable with its early diagnosis. We highly recommend regular examinations, blood tests, and colon examinations for the determination of precancerous polyps as well as colon cancer at the first stage. All of the above are necessary preventive measures for pathology. It is also possible to regularly cleanse the body of toxins and harmful substances using a colonic hydrotherapy procedure.

Treatment of colon and rectum cancer

Doctors choose a treatment method to assess the tumour process stage and tumour localisation. They also consider the specific features of the tumour’s tissue structure and the patient’s physical condition.

The primary treatment method is surgical in the absence of distant metastases. However, surgical treatment can be combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.

Currently, colonic treatments are available at our Holborn location in the centre of London.

Radiation and chemotherapy for bowel cancer

Radiation therapy is treatment with ionising radiation. Chemotherapy for bowel cancer of the intestine refers to the methods of global exposure, which distinguishes it from surgery and radiation therapy.

To destroy cancer cells, suspend tumour growth for a long time, reduce tumour size before surgery or radiation therapy, and destroy micrometastases that could appear before or after removing a tumour.

Effective treatments

Chemotherapy for bowel cancer is one of the most effective treatments. Preparations used for chemotherapy have a destructive effect on tumour cells. Chemotherapy is always a course of treatment.

Thus, a patient with an intestinal tumour must consult an oncologist after the operation. To sum up, properly selecting postoperative chemotherapy may prevent the development of a tumour in the future.
