About Bowel Cancer Surgery


Unlike some other cancers where many treatment choices are available, surgery is the most common treatment for removing the cancer from your bowel.
However, some people will also require chemotherapy and radiotherapy to reduce the size of the tumour and prevent progression of the disease.
If surgery is not an option, then chemotherapy and radiotherapy are offered to halt progression of the disease and to help control the symptoms.
