Treatment of bowel cancer

The primary treatment modality of cancer of the small bowel is surgical resection which can include radiotherapy and chemotherapy in instances of recurrence and spread to other organs. The management of large bowel cancer depends on the site, severity and spread of the cancer. The primary treatment modality is surgical resection of the cancerous part of bowel followed by end to end suturing. The treatment of choice in case of cancer of the colon is surgical resection followed by chemotherapy with 5-fluorouracil whereas cancer of the rectum is mostly managed by surgical resection followed by radiotherapy. In instances of spread of cancer to other organs, all the three modalities may be considered which may vary from individual to individual. The prognosis of bowel cancer is good if the cancer is diagnosed in the early stages.
