New Choices for Colon Cancer Patients
Date:10/20/2010

ds colonoscopies beginning at age 50, and earlier if there are risk factors present.  Pre-cancerous growths can be easily removed during a colonoscopy, and according to the NCI is the best way to prevent colorectal cancer.  Yet over 40% of Americans over 50 have not been screened.  New digital colonoscopy, or CTC, is done without sedation and recovery is quick, but can be uncomfortable when the bowel is briefly inflated with carbon dioxide.  Both procedures require a strong liquid laxative to cleanse the bowel.  There is less risk of a bowel puncture and significantly less cost with a CTC, but if polyps or lesions are discovered, a standard procedure must be done to remove them.

Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are still the standard colorectal cancer treatments in the USA.  According to the medical tourism company TMD Limited, nearly a million US citizens leave the country each year seeking less invasive, gentler treatments.  Those numbers just keep increasing, as patients find alternative treatments that let them enjoy life, continue to work and improve their health.  Freedom of choice, for many, is choosing a clinic outside the country.
