Cancer: Colon Message Board


Cancer: Colon Board Index


my mom was diagnosed with stage 1 colon cancer.the cancer is very low in her colon, so the concern is that there may not be enough tissue to reconnect after they remove part of her colon, she of course does not want to live with a bag at her stomach for the rest of her life. we have read about cryosurgery and radio surgery where they use radio waves on tumors, and are really considering taking a second approach other than removing part of her colon. we are also considering doing the radio surgery to reduce the size of the tumor, and then remove it so that less colon tissue needs to be removed. our other concern is we want to bring her to a cancer center, not a general hospital since her doctor is not a specialist in her problem. we are from fort myers, florida. can anyone please give recommendations as to where we can take her? we want to do it in the next few days.

thank you. :angel:
