       Early Detection of Cancer

 

For most people, a tummy ache is just that. A simple tummy ache. It's something we tend to take very casually. But, on occasion, a stomach ache can be indicative of a far more serious problem - digestive track complications, colitis and even cancer. Tackling these conditions at an early stage ensures you a better chance of survival. In cases involving colonic cancer and colitis, timely intervention can save the lives of 70-80% of patients. So, make it a point to visit your doctor regularly for check-ups.

 

What are the treatment options?

The incidence of colonic cancer and colitis in India is steadily on the rise. These diseases can have serious, if not fatal, consequences if not caught in time. Thus regular check-ups are essential.

Regular check-ups help detect diseases early and the data acquired allows the doctor to make informed treatment decisions which may or may not include pouch surgery, laparoscopy surgery, advanced surgery or minimally invasive surgery. We have provided more information on the various treatment options below.
