The dreaded ‘C’ word- Dealing with Cancer of the Rectum

Cancer has become an epidemic to say the very least. Aptly termed ‘Emperor of Maladies’ it has become anightmare for both the patients and their doctors. But what works in the favor of life and a chance at complete recovery is ‘Prevention’ and ‘Early Detection’.

This principle also applies to cancer developing in the Colo-Rectal Region. Cancer of the rectum is more prevalent in men above 50. We, at HHC, have been supporting campaigns to aid ‘Prevention of Cancer of the Rectum’ through dietary recommendations such as high fibre diet and early detection by screening tests.

  1. A change in previous bowel habits, such as constipation or diarrhoea
  2. Bleeding from the anus
  3. Abdominal pain
  4. Weight loss
Colonoscopy & Biopsy
Depends on Stage, Early Stage can be Cured with Surgery.
