Colorectal Cancer Treatment: What You Need to Know
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a type of cancer that affects the colon or rectum. It can develop from small growths called polyps in the lining of the colon or rectum, which can turn cancerous over time. If left untreated, CRC can spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. In this article, we’ll explore the different treatment options available for CRC.
Colorectal Cancer Staging
Before deciding on a treatment plan, it’s important to determine the stage of the cancer. The stage of CRC is determined by how far the cancer has spread in the body. The stages are as follows:
Stage 0: The cancer is only in the innermost lining of the colon or rectum.
Stage I: The cancer has grown into the inner layer of the colon or rectum.
Stage II: The cancer has grown into or through the outermost layer of the colon or rectum.
Stage III: The cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
Stage IV: The cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the liver or lungs.
