Treatments for Colorectal Cancer according to stages: -
- Stage 1 treatment needs only surgery because in this situation tumor doesn’t spread outside the colon. There is no need for additional therapy.
- Stage 2 treatment needs radiation therapy with surgery to remove the tumor. Because in this case, tumor spreads through walls of the colon.
- Stage 3 treatment needs surgery as the first treatment with chemotherapy. In this case, tumor starts spreading nearby lymph nodes. Radiation therapy is not compulsory, but it depends on the location and size of the tumor.
- Stage 4 treatments (this is a very dangerous stage, or we can say that last stage of colon cancer).
