COLORECTAL ( Bowel ) CANCER

Introduction of Colorectal Cancer:-

  • Colorectal cancer, commonly known as colon cancer or bowel cancer, is a cancer from uncontrolled cell growth in the colon or rectum (parts of the large intestine), or in the  It develops in the tissues of the colon and/or rectum.
  • It is the fourth most common cancer worldwide.
  • It affects men and women almost equally and tends to be more common in developed countries and it is particularly common in the US, Europe and Australia.
  • Studies suggest that the environmental factors (probably diet) play a major role in the etiology of disease.
  • The left side of colon was more commonly affected, but over last two decades there has been steady increase in the incidence of cancer in the proximal colon.
  • It is more common in people over 50 years of age, and the risk increases with the age.
  • The tumour often starts as a polypoidal mass and then tends to infiltrate into and through bowel wall.
  • Estimated new cases and deathsfrom colon and rectal cancer in the United States in 2013:
  • New cases: 102,480 (colon); 40,340 (rectal)
  • Deaths: 50,830 (colon and rectal combined)

Types of Colorectal Cancer: –

There are numerous types of colorectal cancer, but Adenocarcinoma is the most common. Adenocarcinoma represents more than 95 percent of colon and rectal cancers. They tend to start in the inner layer and then spread deeper to other layers. Adenocarcinoma is of two types:

  • Mucinous Adenocarcinoma: – Itis made up of approximately 60 percent mucus. The mucus can cause cancer cells to spread faster and become more aggressive than typical Adenocarcinoma. Mucinous Adenocarcinoma account for 10 to 15 percent of all colon and rectal Adenocarcinoma.
  • Signet ring cell Adenocarcinoma: – This accounts for less than one percent of Adenocarcinoma. Signet ring cell Adenocarcinoma is typically aggressive and may be more difficult to treat.

Other types of colorectal cancer:-

There are many other types of colorectal cancers, and account for just 5 percent of all cases. These are as follows:

  • Squamous cell carcinomas: –Some parts of the GI tract, like the upper part of the esophagus and the end of the anus, are lined with flat cells called as “squamous cells”. Cancers starting in these cells are called squamous cell carcinomas.
  • Gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors: –This is slow-growing cancer forms in the neuroendocrine cell (a nerve cell that also creates hormones) in the lining of the GIT. These tumors account for just 1 percent of all colorectal cancers, but half of all of the cancers found in the small intestine.
  • Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs): – This is a rare type of colorectal cancer that starts in a special cell found in the lining of the GIT. More than 50 percent of GISTs start in the stomach. While most of the others start in the small intestine, the rectum is the third most common location. GISTs are classified as sarcomas, cancers that begin in the connective tissues, which include fat, muscle, blood vessels, deep skin tissues, nerves, bones and cartilage.
  • Primary colorectal lymphomas:-This is a type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). Lymphomas are cancers that develop in the lymphatic system from cells called “Lymphocytes”. Lymphocytes are a type of WBCs that helps the body fight infections. NHL can develop in many parts of the body, including the lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen, thymus and the digestive tract. Primary colorectal lymphomas account for just 0.5 percent of all colorectal cancers, and about 5 percent of all lymphomas. The disease usually occurs later in life, and is more common in Men than Women.
  • Leiomyosarcomas: –Another form of sarcoma, “Leiomyosarcomas” is nothing but “cancer of smooth muscle.” The colon and rectum have three layers of the type of muscle that can be affected. This is rare type of colorectal cancer accounts for about 0.1 percent of all colorectal cases.
  • Melanomas: –Although most commonly associated with the skin, melanomas can occur anywhere, including the colon or rectum.

Basic pathology of Colorectal Cancer:-

The various stages of a colorectal cancer are determined by the depth of invasion through the wall of the intestine; the involvement of the lymph nodes (the drainage nodules); and the spread to other organs. The stages of colorectal cancer are as follows:

  • Stage 0:- Stage 0 Cancer is known as “carcinoma in situ”. The disease remains within the lining of the colon or rectum.
  • Stage 1:- In stage 1, colorectal cancer have grown through several layers of the intestine but have not spread beyond the muscular coat of the colon or rectum.
  • Stage 2:- Stage 2 colorectal cancer are subdivided into two parts:
  • Stage 2A:- Colorectal Cancer has penetrated beyond the muscular layers of the large intestine,
  • Stage 2B:-Colorectal Cancer has spread into adjacent tissue. However, it has not yet reached the lymph nodes.
  • Stage 3:- In stage 3, colorectal cancer is considered an advanced stage of cancer as the disease has spread to the lymph nodes, but not to other parts or organs in the body.
  • Stage 4:- In stage 4, colorectal cancer, and the disease has spread (metastasized) to distant organs such as the liver, lungs, or ovaries.

Clinical Presentation of Colorectal Cancer:-

  • In the early stages of the disease, colorectal cancer symptoms may be minimal, or not present at all. As the disease progresses, symptoms may increase in quantity and degree of severity.
  • Colorectal cancer signs and symptoms can be divided into two general categories:
  • Local symptoms.
  • Systemic symptoms.
Local Colorectal Cancer symptoms:(That has a direct effect on the colon or rectum). Symptoms are as follows: Systemic Colorectal Cancer symptoms:(That affects entire body). Symptoms are as follows:
ü  Changes in your bowel habitsü  Constipation

ü  Diarrhea

ü  Alternating diarrhea and constipation

ü  Rectal bleeding or blood in your stool

ü  Abdominal bloating, cramps or discomfort

ü  A feeling that your bowel doesn’t empty completely

ü  Stools that are thinner than normal

ü  Unexplained weight lossü  Unexplained loss of appetite

ü  Nausea or vomiting

ü  Anemia

ü  Jaundice

ü  Weakness or fatigue

 

 Diagnosis of Colorectal cancer:-

  • Many patients with colorectal cancer remain asymptomatic until their disease is at an advanced stage.
  • With screening programs and increased public awareness, patients with asymptomatic disease may be diagnosed at an earlier stage.
  • Following are the certain diagnostics test should be done to detect colorectal cancer:-
  • Blood tests: – Blood tests are advised to understand what are the cause of signs and symptoms is, but there are no blood tests that can detect colon cancer. Blood tests may include a complete blood count and organ-function tests. Complete blood count(CBC) to check for anemia.
  • Colonoscopy: – Colonoscopy is done by using a scope to examine, inside of the colon. Colonoscopy uses a long, flexible and slender tube attached to a video camera and monitor to view the entire colon and rectum to find out the cause of disease.
  • A barium enema test: – It is done by using dye and X-rays to make a picture of your colon. A barium enema allows doctor to evaluate entire colon with an X-ray.
  • Virtual colonoscopy: – Virtual colonoscopy combines multiple computerized tomography (CT) images to create a detailed picture of the inside of colon. If anyone is unable to undergo colonoscopy, virtual colonoscopy may be recommandaded.
  • Afecal occult blood test (FOBT):- It may detect small amounts of blood in the stool. This may suggest colon cancer. FOBT must be done along with with colonoscopy or Sigmoidoscopy to screen for and diagnose colorectal cancer.

Treatment of Colorectal Cancer:-

The type of treatment of colorectal cancer will depend upon the stage of cancer. The three primary treatment options are:

Surgery: – It includes following:

  • Surgery for early-stage colon cancer: – If cancer is small, localized in a polyp and in a very early stage, then it is advised to remove it completely during a colonoscopy. If the cancer in the polyp doesn’t involve the base and if the polyp is attached to the bowel wall then cancer has to be completely eliminated. Some larger polyps may be removed using laparoscopic surgery.
  • Surgery for invasive colon cancer: – If colon cancer has grown into or through colon, partial Colectomy is advised to remove the part of colon that contains the cancer, along with a margin of normal tissue on either side of the cancer. Nearby lymph nodes are usually also removed and tested for cancer.
  • Surgery for advanced cancer: – If cancer is very advanced or individuals overall health is very poor, then an operation to relieve a blockage of your colon or other conditions in order to improve your symptoms is recommandaded. This surgery isn’t done to cure cancer, but instead to relieve signs and symptoms, such as bleeding and pain. Chemotherapy may be used before or after this type of surgery.

Chemotherapy: – Chemotherapy uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be used to destroy cancer cells after surgery, to control tumor growth or to relieve symptoms of colon cancer. Chemotherapy is recommended if your cancer has spread beyond the wall of the colon or if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. In people with rectal cancer, chemotherapy is typically used along with radiation therapy.

Radiation therapy: – Radiation therapy uses powerful energy sources, such as X-rays, to kill any cancer cells that might remain after surgery, to shrink large tumors before an operation so that they can be removed more easily, or to relieve symptoms of colon cancer and rectal cancer. Radiation therapy is rarely used in early-stage colon cancer, but is a routine part of treating rectal cancer, especially if the cancer has penetrated through the wall of the rectum or traveled to nearby lymph nodes.
