On Colon Cancer

While there are several reasons that a patient might need to undergo colon surgery , one of the most obvious is colon cancer. This disease can be devastating if not caught early enough, and the surgical options can be quite radical. On the other hand, if polyps are removed before they become cancerous, many patients can avoid developing cancer altogether. Additionally, the removal of cancerous tumors before they have penetrated too deeply into the colon wall has a very high survival rate.

Doctors may recommend colon surgery for patients who experience any of the following:

* Abscesses
* Bleeding Arteriovenous Malformations
* Bowel Obstructions
* Colon Cancer
* Crohn's Disease
* Diverticulitis
* Fistulas
* Inflammatory Bowel Disease
* Strictures
* Volvulus or Twist
