Healthy cells grow and divide in an orderly manner keeping the body functioning normally. When a cell's genetic component, the DNA, gets damaged, the cell multiplies abnormally, forming tumors that may become malignant or cancerous. Cancerous cells spread through metastasis. Malignant large bowel Cystadenocarcinoma or colon cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the large intestine or colon.
- Depending on the size and extent of the spread of cancer, patients may need to undergo surgery.
- In the initial stages of colon cancers that have not grown much, surgery to take out the cancer is often the only treatment needed.
- For some advanced colon cancers that cannot be removed completely by surgery, chemotherapy is given along with radiation, also called chemoradiation.
- In the higher stages of Malignant large bowel Cystadenocarcinoma, chemotherapy is given both before and after surgery.
- Radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy
- External Beam Therapy -EBT
- Targeted therapy - a type of precision cancer treatment via chemotherapy.
- Traditional or standard chemotherapy targets fast-growing cells throughout the body; whether they're cancerous or not, targeted therapy directs drugs to specific features of cancer cells, killing them or trying to prevent their abnormal multiplication.
- Immunotherapy is the use of specific medicines which not only boost a person's immune system but also recognize and destroy cancer cells.
