intestine or colon that is the last part of
digestive system in the form of small lumps or
the benign mass.The colon cancer is common in all
ages but attacks mostly on elderly age group. It
may sometimes be of colorectal category,
originating from colon and spreading throughout
the rectum.

resection. ? If the above methods do not succeed,
the small lump can be removed by laparoscopic
surgery ? In cases of malignancy, partial
colectomy that is the removal of affected part

reconnected. ? When none of the options work, the
solution is ostomy that is creating an opening in

target cancer cells. A cancer is a disease that
target your mind along with your body , the
person facing challenges must get palliative care
