There are many factors and conditions that are responsible for the occurrence of colorectal cancer in patients. Age, inflammatory bowel, diverticulitis, and even family history are some of the factors that can lead to colorectal cancer. Frequent medical tests and early recognition of symptoms can help to eradicate or reduce the damage caused by colorectal cancer.
Colorectal Cancer Clinic in Arizona
Cancer of the colon and rectum is very common in the U.S. Early tumors can be treated with surgical removal, however larger tumors or cancers in the lower rectum frequently require 5 or 6 weeks of radiation, given before or after surgery (with or without chemotherapy depending upon other factors), to prevent recurrence and/or a permanent colostomy. Tomotherapy permits reduction of dosage to the small intestines while permitting successful treatment of the colon or rectum and its draining lymph nodes. This may reduce the likelihood of long-term bowel problems as well as the possibility of post-surgical complications.
Colorectal cancer can also spread to the liver; frequently, it is the only site of spread. Since the liver is very sensitive to radiation, in the past it has been difficult to treat liver metastases with radiation without damaging the liver. Tomotherapy now allows us to accurately target liver tumors to receive high doses of radiation, while safely sparing the rest of the liver.
