Hyderabad, May 20th, 2018: Colo-rectal cancer, also known as the bowel cancer is among the deadliest cancers in the world! From being the third most prevalent cancer across the World, this dangerous ailment is fast becoming the common cancer found among Indians.

 

According to certain estimates, nearly 1.5 million people are diagnosed with colorectal or bowel cancer each year; and deaths percentage in such cases is relatively higher. It is also guesstimated that one in every 23 men and women have the life-time risk of contracting bowel cancer.

 

In India, while the prevalence of this cancer is on the rise, it is an urgent necessity to enhance awareness about the latest techniques to cure the ailment. Dr. Nagendra Parvataneni, Senior Surgical Oncologist at the Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences hospital who specialized in the treatment of this cancer, has taken upon himself to educate his colleagues and Doctors from across the Telugu States about the latest techniques to cure.

 

Commenting on the cancer, Dr. Parvataneni said, “Bowel cancer spreads slowly in the body, and could take 6 to 8 years to completely damage the system. In India, there have been instances where late diagnosis of this condition resulted in deaths. Hence, it is important the signs of this cancer are read early, and treatment is administered on the effected individual.”

 

He further added, “We at KIMS are striving to enhance awareness on this deadly cancer, among fellow surgeons and common people. While the risk of colorectal cancer is high among the aged, off late it is being seen among young adults too. Hence, a growing concern!”

 

Advancement in medical sciences has developed right treatment regimens for bowel cancer. Surgery is critical for such patients, coupled with chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments. While the chances of survival in a stage-3 condition is 40%, it drops down to just 10% in stage-4. Hence it is important people in general, and Doctors in specific focus on early detection and right treatment. Dr G Suresh Kumar, Dr Sethu babu, Dr RA Sastry, Dr Krishna Kiran Kannepalli, Dr Vijaykumar Bada, Dr Chandrasekhar Rao Simhadri, Dr MBV Prasad, Dr I Satish Rao, Dr KVVN Raju, Dr Subramaneswara Rao, Dr GSN Raju participated.
