Keyhole surgery saves women with colon cancer tumour

Crucial to check for colorectal cancer Doc

"Giving a baby dose of Viagra can reduce the amount of tumors in these animals by half", Darren D. Browning, cancer researcher at the Georgia Cancer Center and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University said in a press release.

Colorectal cancer is highly treatable, and the earlier it's detected the better the chances of survival.

The American Cancer Society estimates there will be 4,510 new cases of colorectal cancer and 1,670 deaths due to the disease in MI this year.

Although studies have not confirmed it, Dr Chee suspects a similar trend here.

Based on this evidence, the doctors diagnosed the patient with a condition called Lynch Syndrome, a genetic disorder that increases her risk of developing colon cancer and other cancers. The greatest risk factor for colorectal cancer is the failure to be screened.

The organisation believes that awareness of the disease is crucial as incidence rates soar.

March is a National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month that offers an opportunity to increase your knowledge about symptoms and screenings for the disease.

Body of missing Australian woman found in Whistler, BC park
Police have located the body of a missing Perth woman who disappeared from a ski resort in Canada nearly four months ago. It is believed Ms Raspa took a bus from the Whistler village to a highway stop, then walked about 200m to the park.

Despite the increase in cases overseas and here, Dr Chee said mortality rates have declined.

He adds the advancement of treatments have allowed it to become an easily curable cancer.

Inflammation drives less than 5 percent of colorectal cancers, as about 80 percent form spontaneously when cells divide and mutate uncontrollably. It detects about 92 percent of the cancers that are present and also finds approximately 40 percent percent of precancerous polyps.

Besides seeing blood in their stool, other symptoms include cramping or abdominal pain, fatigue, unexplained weight loss and a change in bowel habits.

Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in West Virginia and doctors said it's important to know what foods can trigger colon problems and what foods can help keep your colon healthy. "When there are, the cancer may already be at an advanced stage", said Dr Chee.

"The patient was extremely fortunate that she managed to catch the tumour in its early stages and therefore was able to have it surgically removed without the need for further treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy", said Dr. Sidani. The New 50 campaign spotlights a modern screening option, Cologuard®, which uses advanced technology to detect changes in stool DNA that indicate cancer and precancer. "Many of my patients understand the importance of colon cancer screening, but fear the more traditional tests which involve uncomfortable preparation, sedation and time off work", said Dr. Jacqueline Champlain, a family medicine physician at Austin Regional Clinic.
