Frequently Asked Questions

Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is a type of cancer that begins in the colon or rectum, which are parts of the large intestine. It typically develops from growths called polyps, which are small groups of cells that can become cancerous over time. Most colon cancers are adenocarcinomas, meaning they originate in the cells that line the inside of the colon and rectum.

Several risk factors can increase the likelihood of developing colon cancer. These include:

  • Most cases occur in individuals over 50
  • A family history of colon cancer or certain genetic syndromes, such as Lynch syndrome or familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), can elevate the risk.
  • Personal history
  • A diet high in red and processed meats, low in fibre
  • Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption
  • Conditions like Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis

The symptoms of colon cancer can vary, but they may include:

  • Changes in bowel habits.
  • Rectal bleeding.
  • Persistent abdominal discomfort, cramps, or gas.
  • Unexplained weight loss.
  • Weakness and fatigue.
  • Iron deficiency anaemia.

If you experience any of these symptoms, especially if they persist for more than a few days or worsen, it's important to consult a healthcare professional for further evaluation.

Once diagnosed, colon cancer is staged to determine its severity and how far it has spread. Staging helps guide treatment decisions and prognosis. Stages range from 0 (early) to IV (advanced).
Regular screening tests and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle can help prevent colon cancer.
Colon cancer is typically diagnosed through a combination of tests, including a colonoscopy, biopsy, and imaging tests.
No, not all polyps are cancerous. In fact, most polyps are benign (non- cancerous).
Yes, most polyps can often be removed during a colonoscopy, which can help prevent colon cancer.
The prognosis for patients with colon cancer tends to be better than most other cancers, with cures achieved in most patients with stage I-III and some patients even have stage IV disease.
5-year survival rates for stages I and II are more than 90%; stage III is about 70%, and stage IV is 15%. , but Overall, the five-year survival rate is around 65%.
The risk factors for rectal cancer are similar to those for colon cancer, including age, family history, and lifestyle factors.
Rectal cancer is typically diagnosed through a combination of tests, including a digital rectal examination, a colonoscopy, and imaging tests.
The treatment for rectal cancer depends on the stage of disease and may include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and, most often, a combination of these treatments.
