A colon cancer diagnosis can have a profound impact on your life. In addition to the physical challenges, this diagnosis can also alter your emotions and perceptions, as well as the lives of the people close to you. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with colon cancer, you probably have many questions, but not a lot of answers. And the answers you do get may not help. Colon cancer is a complex disease, but having a good understanding of what it is can help you understand what is going on, and even take a more active role in your treatment.
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) we believe in your fundamental right to be informed about, and to choose, the most appropriate treatment options available. We encourage you and your family to be fully involved in every decision that is made relating to your treatment and we make it our mission to provide you with the knowledge you need to actively participate in your treatment.
Colon cancer staging is a careful attempt to find out whether the cancer has spread, and if it has, to what other parts of the body it has spread. Colon cancer staging is very important because it helps to establish which forms of treatment may be appropriate in fighting the cancer.
There are a number of tests that may be used to help determine colon cancer stages including blood tests, colonoscopy, endorectal ultrasound, and a variety of other tests. These tests help determine colon cancer stages and also give insight into creating a treatment plan.
