Sometimes tiny tumor cells are left inside a patient after a colorectal cancer surgery. These cells can continue to grow and may lead to a recurrence of the disease. Dr. Christopher Lieu talks about how doctors use chemotherapy to lower the risk of recurrence of colorectal cancer in this video. Doing chemo after surgery can kill these tumor cells before they have a chance to multiply. This increases the chances of high risk patients living a healthy, disease-free life after surgery. Dr. Lieu joined the University of Colorado School of Medicine faculty as an Assistant Professor in July 2011. He trained in internal medicine at the University of Colorado, where he also served as a Chief Medical Resident. He completed his fellowship training in medical oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and served as the Chief Medical Oncology Fellow in 2010.

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer in the world. Meta-analyses have suggested that CEA and CT are the only modes with significant potential to detect curatively treatable metastatic recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer. 5 year survival rates for metastasis have been improving and the likelihood of survival goes up if metastatic disease is treated before it becomes symptomatic. There are published studies outlining different monitoring strategies, but none that have compared CEA and CT to treatable recurrence on this scale. In conclusion, these results show that intensive follow-up by either scheduled CEA or CT increased the likelihood of detecting a recurrence that can be treated with curative intent. Combined CEA and CT was not superior to either individually. Because CEA testing can be done in primary care, it is likely to be more cost-effective than regular CT imaging. However, if there is an advantage to survival with either monitoring strategy, it is likely to be small.

Regular consumption of caffeinated coffee may help prevent the return of colon cancer after treatment and improve the chances of a cure, according to a new, large study led by Dr. Charles S. Fuchs of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Transcription: No one has ever looked at coffee and outcome in cancer patients before, and I think it’s an important finding in part because it speaks to biology—the same biologic processes that we think coffee may impact people’s general health. It appears to benefit specifically patients who have been treated for colon cancer. There is a benefit for individuals who are consuming two to three cups per day. There was a greater benefit for individuals who drank four or more cups. Now, I don’t know how that would translate into any specific recommendation. I would propose that if you are a coffee drinker and you've been treated for colon cancer, well, don’t stop. Should somebody who has been treated for colon cancer who is not drinking coffee necessarily assume the habit of drinking coffee, I really couldn’t speak to that. I don’t think it’s proper to know just based on this one study, but it certainly speaks to a potential dietary habit that might significantly improve the outcome for patients.

Cancer is extremely difficult to deal with, and many patients undergo rounds of chemotherapy, surgery and many other procedures to be able to rid the cancer from their body. However, after all is said and done, do they truly recover? Is their body ready to fight off future cancer cells that will inevitably develop, just as they do every day? The answer is likely no, as the body is weakened from cancer treatments and the patient is now probably suffering from other ailments that are side effects of the treatments they had previously received. There are natural ways to restore the body to a healthy state post-cancer treatment and to encouraging the prevention of cancer cells in the future so that a patient can maintain positive physical and mental health. In this video, expert Dr. Pati of the SaJune Institute for Restorative and Regenerative Medicine -- which specializes in hormone replacement therapy, weight management programs, acupuncture, detoxification, nutrition, anti-aging, massage and more -- describes the 5 point restorative approach used to naturally prevent cancer from coming back and restore health by reducing or eliminating the side effects of intense cancer treatments. Based on hormones, nutrients, removing toxicities, mental peace, and a body which is pain free and structurally sound, this method has been proven successful by many patients previously suffering from the side effects of cancer treatment.

From Boston - A diet high in sugars and and carbohydrates is strongly associated with colon cancer recurrence, according to a report published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Researchers studied over 1,000 advanced colon cancer patients who had undergone surgery and were enrolled in a chemotherapy-trial for their disease. Participants reported their diet during the trial and 6 months afterwards. Results showed that patients whose diet had high levels of complex sugars and carbohydrates were at 80% increased risk of their cancer recurring and dying, when compared to patients with the lowest levels. This increased risk was even greater among patients who were overweight or obese. Lead author of the study, Jeffrey Meyerhardt, had this to say, "Eat less sugar...Our study certainly supports the idea that diet can impact the progression of colon cancer, and that patients and their doctors should consider this when making post-treatment plans."

Can consuming artificially sweetened soft drinks help reduce colon cancer death and recurrence risks in patients? A Yale study says yes, and researchers want to take a closer look at artificial sweeteners’ health impacts. Colorectal Cancer And Diet Cola Researchers of a new study found that consuming diet or artificially sweetened soft drinks may be linked to significantly reduced risks of colon cancer death and recurrence. Their findings revealed that the patients who consumed one or more 12-ounce serving of artificially sweetened beverage a day reduced their cancer death or recurrence risk by 46 percent compared to those who don’t drink such diet soft drinks. For the purposes of the study, “soft drinks” were classified as caffeinated colas, non-caffeinated colas, and other carbonated drinks such as diet ginger ale. The researchers gathered their data from over 1,000 patients with stage III colorectal cancer, all of whom participated in a National Cancer Institute-supported clinical trial in which they were followed during chemotherapy between 1999 and 2001, and for the next seven years to track cancer recurrence and death. Participants of this trial were also given questionnaires regarding the consumption of over 130 different types of food and drinks. Other studies also found similar reductions to cancer recurrence and death risks, but as a result of coffee and tree nut consumption. The researchers, however, chose to focus on artificially sweetened beverages because a previous study showed that consuming sugar sweetened beverages drastically increases the risk for colon cancer development. As such, they wanted to see if a change in lifestyle by consuming artificially sweetened beverages, even with advanced stage cancer, would affect cancer outcomes post-surgery.

how to treat colon cancer with surgery |chemotherapy for colon cancer Depending upon the stage of colon cancer you have (stage I, II, III, or IV), you may be best treated with surgery, with chemotherapy, or with a combination of both. It is key to receive treatment for your colon cancer as soon as possible, and to follow up with regular visits with your physician following treatment to monitor your recovery and to check for any possible relapses. 1 Have your colon cancer staged. Before deciding on any course of treatment, the first step is to confirm your diagnosis of colon cancer and to have the cancer, if it is indeed present, staged. Staging is done using additional scanning of the body with CT or PET scanning and a biopsy of the primary cancer lesion that was found. This is important for developing an individualized treatment plan. There are 4 stages of colon cancer: Stage I is limited to the bowel while stage IV has metastasized throughout the body, with stages II and III representing intermediate levels of severity without body-wide metastases. Stages I, II, and III are generally treated with surgery as the first-line option. Stages II and III may require "adjuvant" chemotherapy (chemotherapy to supplement the treatment following surgical excision of the cancer). Stage IV is treated predominantly with chemotherapy, and occasional surgery is used as an adjunct (as an addition) to remove masses causing pain, obstruction (blockage of the bowel), or that are otherwise problematical. 2 Have your cancer removed surgically. Assuming that you fall into stages I, II, or III, you will be booked for a surgery to remove your cancer as soon as possible. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and normally takes a few hours to complete. The affected section of your bowel (where the cancer is present) will be removed, and the lymph nodes in the surrounding areas will be examined by your surgeon to see if the cancer has spread to them. If the cancer has not spread to the lymph nodes, this is a very good sign. It indicates that your cancer was most likely fully cured by surgery alone. If the cancer has spread to your lymph nodes, however, there is the possibility of "micrometastases" - meaning small cancerous cells that have "escaped" into your bloodstream and pose a heightened risk for recurrence of your cancer down the road. Your surgeon will inform you following the procedure whether or not your lymph nodes contained any traces of cancer. The excised (removed) portion of your bowel will also be examined under a microscope following surgery, by a medical specialist called a pathologist. The pathologist is able to provide additional diagnostic information about the type of cancer you had based on the appearance of the cancerous cells under the microscope. 3 Wear a colostomy bag following surgery. After surgery, the most common procedure to attach the loose end on the proximal (upper) end of your colon to your abdominal wall, so that the opening of your bowel pokes through your skin. This is called a "stoma," and it functions by attaching an "ostomy bag" to the outside of it to collect stool while the rest of your colon heals. Using a colostomy bag (or "ostomy bag") can be a challenge both functionally and socially. For more information on how to use and change a colostomy bag, click here. SUBSCRIBE TO MORE VIDEOS
