What is bowel/intestine?

The large intestine, also known as the large bowel, is the last part of the gastrointestinal tract and of the digestive system.

The colon is the longest portion of the large intestine, the large intestine also includes the cecum, colon, and, rectum.

Gastrointestinal exams can be classified into two, an upper Gastrointestinal test which includes the examination of the digestive system from the oesophagus to the small intestine. Whereas the Lower Gastrointestinal test includes an examination of the digestive tract from the large intestine to the rectum.

Colon and rectal cancers are increasing in incidence due to the low fiber diet and increased junk food consumption. At Cytecare hospitals, we have a comprehensive cancer screening program for people at risk.

For people who are affected by the disease, the team of Colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, Medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pathologists and pain and palliative care physicians ensure that you are in the best possible treatment protocol which are individualized.

Colorectal cancers can be treated even if they have spread to the liver.
