Rectal prolapse is a condition in which the rectum slips out of the anus. In this condition, the patient suffers from something coming out of the anus and stool incontinence. Earlier stages of this disease are usually treated with some conservative measures. However, almost all patients eventually require surgery.
Laparoscopic repair of rectal prolapse has become the standard of care, and most patients can be treated laparoscopically. This is achieved by reversing the prolapse followed by fixing the rectum with or without a synthetic mesh. You get the best results when you undergo treatment by the best laparoscopic surgeon in Kolkata.
Colon cancer is the cancer of the large intestine. It typically affects older individuals, although rarely it can also affect a younger individual. Most colon cancers begin as a noncancerous polyp and slowly progress to cancer. If a patient is diagnosed with a polyp, curative treatment can be achieved by endoscopic means.
Patients with colon cancer may present with these symptoms (some patients may be completely asymptomatic):
- Change in bowel habits
- Blood in stools
- Abdominal pain or discomfort
- Weight loss
- Weakness / fatigue
Treatment modalities to treat colon cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy and others. The type of treatment offered to a patient depends on the stage of the disease and condition of the patient.
