Stage 4 Colon Cancer Diagnoses July 2010
http://tinyurl.com/2b4rnof Colorectal cancer treatment by modern medicine is chemo therapy followed by surgery to remove the section of colon that is cancerous. Once we recovered from the shock of my physician informing us that I had stage four colon cancer (that has spread to include all the liver lobes), we dove into Google searching for colorectal cancer treatments and what really works! It is hard to believe that is a picture of me below just six months before my diagnoses, which now motivates me to find the perfect colorectal cancer treatment.

What Is a Colon CT Scan?
A colon CT scan is a technologically advanced scan of the colon. Its purpose is to provide digital images of the inside of the colon and document the size and location of abnormalities. Benefits of a colon CT scan over other investigative methods include its ease of use and the fact that sedation is not necessary. The downside of a colon CT is that if abnormalities are found, the patient must then undergo a traditional colonoscopy to have the abnormalities examined or removed. Typically, a colon scan is an x-ray of the entire colon and rectum. The patient is placed on an examination table and the CT machine moves around his or her body taking images for study. A specialized program allows the machine to take two-dimensional and three-dimensional photos of the colon and rectum. This provides very detailed views of polyps, malformations, or other problems. The CT scan is a fairly quick procedure, with repeat examinations recommended every five years. Patients do not have to be sedated, which means they can drive themselves to and from the appointment. Small polyps are sometimes missed during the procedure, and false positive test results have also occurred. In the days leading to the procedure, most patients are asked to take in only liquids. The night before the procedure, the patient drinks a cleansing solution that causes the body to flush the colon through bowel movements. This cleans out the colon so that the best images can be taken. A colon scan is less invasive than a traditional colonoscopy, although both of them use a tube to pump the colon full of air. The difference is that the traditional colonoscopy sends a tube with a camera throughout the entire colon length, while the CT procedure only requires a short air tube that is placed just inside the rectum. Some patients experience mild cramping as the colon is filled with air. The colon scan procedure takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Possible complications from a colon CT scan include a small risk of the colon wall rupturing or becoming damaged from the air pressure filling it up. Side effects such as cramping and bloating are possible. The patient is exposed to a small amount of radiation during the procedure, as it is an x-ray. Patients who have a colon CT scan that identifies abnormalities will undergo a traditional colonoscopy for further examination and tissue or polyp removal for biopsy. Once a problem is identified on a colon CT scan, the patient is typically monitored more closely. Scans every three to five years are usually recommended at that point.

Crohn's disease: the inside story - futuris
Crohn's disease: the inside story Around 700,000 Europeans are diagnosed with Crohn's disease each year. Specialists at University College hospital in central London, are exploring new ways to detect the disease and help patients cope with its symptoms. Crohn's suffer Jill Fellows said: "It really is a very nasty disease, and people need to be able to realize that, and really don't have the mentality that it is just going to the bathroom all the time, because it is so much more than that. "You get Crohn´s arthritis; I got my hands literally seized up. I got affected in my hip as well. Also I had Crohn's in my eye, which [got swollen]. This disease virtually knocks your immune system even more. So you are so susceptible to everything". The condition causes inflammation of the intestine and symptoms can vary. "I had horrendous stomach pains, I had horrendous diarrhea and also I was bleeding. So obviously something was not quite right," said Crohn's patient Andrew Gilbert. "At the end of the day, they operated on me. They thought it was a split bowel so effectively they opened up the bowel and sent me on my way but the pain just got worst and worst. "It took a good 2, maybe 3 years before they could find that it was Crohn's disease, because I went through so many tests," he added. Crohn´s disease is usually diagnosed through X-Rays or invasive techniques like endoscopy or colonoscopy. But at this hospital, researchers from a European project are testing brand new ways to diagnose it using the latest available medical imaging technology. Radiologists are testing magnetic resonance to look for signs of local bowel wall thickening, a common early sign of the disease. Stuart Taylor, a Radiologist at University College London Hospitals, said: "If you look at this example here [graphic], you can see an abnormal loop of small bowel here. And this is affected by Crohn´s disease, it is much thicker here than the normal small bowel adjacent to it. "From the patients' point of view this is a very safe test. We don't do any radiation, so therefore there is no long-term disadvantages to the patient". Magnetic resonance images offer 3D capabilities and can be matched with computer models, which can predict some physiological processes in the patient's bodies. A big help for gastroenterologists to prescribe the more appropriate treatment for each patients' particular needs. Sot Alastair Forbes, a Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospitals said: "We are now in a position where we can make a fairly confident radiological diagnosis. We can say: the patient has Crohn's disease, or the patient has stenosis, the patient has fibrosis, or the patient has inflammation. "We can then semi-automate that by the computer analysis, using all the various scientific algorithms, that come within the program, then we stand the chance of fine tuning that even further". Researchers hope these new and more accurate methods will keep sufferers better informed of their condition, which is very much welcomed. "Research is fundamental, you know. We have to find out what causes the disease, and if there could be a cure eventually. Specially for the youngsters now, because it is heartbreaking to see so many young people with it," said Jill Fellows. "We are doing more fundamental research enabling that a patient is more accurately assessed. And I think that this technology will be used in the future in the next, let's say, four years or so," said Frans Vos, a Physicist, Delft University of Technology. Experts hope the same computing imaging will soon help tackle other inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis.

Endoscopy Polypectomy of Polyp of Descending Colon
Endoscopy Polypectomy of Polyp of Descending Colon This is a 21 year old lady that presented with Gi bleeding a colonoscopy was performed finding this ulcerated polyp that was removed with polypectomy TYPES OF COLON POLYPS The most common types of polyps are hyperplastic and adenomatous polyps. Other types of polyps can also be found in the colon, although these are far less common and are not discussed here. Hyperplastic polyps — Hyperplastic polyps are usually small, located in the end-portion of the colon (the rectum and sigmoid colon), have no potential to become malignant, and are not worrisome. It is not always possible to distinguish a hyperplastic polyp from an adenomatous polyp based upon appearance during colonoscopy, which means that hyperplastic polyps are often removed or biopsied to allow microscopic examination. Adenomatous polyps — Two-thirds of colon polyps are adenomas. Most of these polyps do not develop into cancer, although they have the potential to become cancerous. Adenomas are classified by their size, general appearance, and their specific features as seen under the microscope. As a general rule, the larger the adenoma, the more likely it is to eventually become a cancer. As a result, large polyps are usually removed completely to prevent cancer and for microscopic examination to guide follow-up testing. Malignant polyps — Polyps that contain pre-cancerous or cancerous cells are known as malignant polyps. The optimal treatment for malignant polyps depends upon the extent of the cancer (when examined with a microscope) and other individual factors. COLON POLYP DIAGNOSIS Polyps usually do not cause symptoms but may be detected during a colon cancer screening examination (such as flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy) (picture 1) or after a positive fecal occult blood test. Polyps can also be detected on a barium enema x-ray, although small polyps are more difficult to see with x-ray. Colonoscopy is the best way to evaluate the colon because it allows the physician to see the entire lining of the colon and remove any polyps that are found. During colonoscopy, a physician inserts a very thin flexible tube with a light source and small camera into the anus. The tube is advanced through the entire length of the large intestine (colon). The inside of the colon is a tube-like structure with a flat surface with curved folds. A polyp appears as a lump that protrudes into the inside of the colon (picture 1). The tissue covering a polyp may look the same as normal colon tissue, or, there may be tissue changes ranging from subtle color changes to ulceration and bleeding. Some polyps are flat ("sessile") and others extend out on a stalk ("pedunculated"). Colonoscopy is also the best test for the follow-up examination of polyps. Virtual colonoscopy using CT technology is another test used to detect polyps in specific circumstances. COLON POLYP REMOVAL Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, accounting for 14 percent of cancer deaths. Colorectal cancer is preventable if precancerous polyps (ie, adenomas) are detected and removed before they become malignant (cancerous). Over time, small polyps can change their structure and become cancerous. Polyps are usually removed when they are found on colonoscopy, which eliminates the chance for that polyp to become cancerous. Procedure — The medical term for removing polyps is polypectomy. Most polypectomies can be performed through a colonoscope. Small polyps can be removed with an instrument that is inserted through the colonoscope and snips off small pieces of tissue. Larger polyps are usually removed by placing a noose, or snare, around the polyp base and burning through it with electric cautery. The cautery also helps to stop bleeding after the polyp is removed. Polyp removal is not painful because the lining of the colon does not have the ability to feel pain. In addition, a sedative medication is given before the colonoscopy to prevent pain caused by stretching of the colon. Rarely, a polyp will be too large to remove during colonoscopy, which means that a surgical procedure will be needed at a later time.

Colonoscopy of Diverticular Disease
A colonoscopy displaying multiple diverticulae Diverticular disease occurs when pouches (diverticula) in the intestine, usually the large intestine or colon, become inflamed. Most diverticula occur in the sigmoid colon, the curved part of the large intestine closest to the rectum, and they tend to become more numerous as we age. Diverticulosis is the presence of many diverticula along the intestinal wall. It occurs more commonly in countries such as the U.S. where the diet is generally low in fiber. More than 50% of adults over age 70 have diverticula, and 80% have no symptoms. Diverticulitis occurs when one or more diverticula become inflamed. The inflammation may be local (just in the area of the diverticulum), or may spread to the abdominal lining (peritoneum), called peritonitis. Small (microscopic) or large perforations (holes in the intestinal wall) occur in 15 - 20% of people who have diverticula. Signs and Symptoms: Often diverticula cause no symptoms, although you may experience irregularities in bowel habits. If symptoms do appear, they may include the following: Abdominal pain, especially after a meal on the lower left side of the abdomen Either painless rectal bleeding or passing of blood in stool Fever Nausea Vomiting Irregular bowel movements, including constipation or diarrhea Gas Bloating Some people with diverticulitis develop fistulas, or abnormal passageways from the intestines into the abdomen or to another organ such as the bladder. This may lead to a urinary tract infection, gas in the urine, pain while urinating, or a more frequent need to urinate. Some people develop peritonitis, an inflammation of the lining of the abdomen. Symptoms of peritonitis may include sudden abdominal pain, muscle spasms, guarding (involuntary contraction of muscles to protect the affected area), and possibly sepsis, the term for an infection that has spread to the blood. Peritonitis can be life threatening if left untreated. What Causes It?: The cause of diverticular disease is unknown, but several factors may contribute to changes in the wall of the colon. These include aging, the movement of waste through the colon, changes in intestinal pressure, a low fiber diet, and physical abnormalities. Who's Most At Risk?: These factors increase the risk for developing diverticular disease: Low fiber diet Advanced age (more than half of people over age 70 have the condition) Obesity Male gender, for diverticulitis The following may contribute as well: Source: http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/diverticular-disease-000051.htm#ixzz2R1hklIPt Follow us: @UMMC on Twitter | MedCenter on Facebook

Colonoscopy of Sigmoid Colon Cancer
Colorectal cancer (also called cancer of the bowel or bowel cancer). Most cases occur in people aged over 50. If colorectal cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, there is a good chance of a cure. In general, the more advanced the cancer (the more it has grown and spread), the less chance that treatment will be curative. However, treatment can often slow the progress of the cancer. Polyps and colorectal cancer A bowel polyp (adenoma) is a small growth that sometimes forms on the inside lining of the colon or rectum. Most bowel polyps develop in older people. About 1 in 4 people over the age of 50 develop at least one bowel polyp. Polyps are benign (noncancerous) and usually cause no problems. However, sometimes a benign polyp can turn cancerous. If one does turn cancerous, the change usually takes place after a number of years. Most colorectal cancers develop from a polyp that has been present for 5-15 years. What causes colorectal cancer? The exact reason why a cell becomes cancerous is unclear. It is thought that something damages or alters certain genes in the cell. This makes the cell abnormal and multiply out of control. See separate leaflet called 'Cancer - What Causes Cancer?' for more details. Risk factors Although colorectal cancer can develop for no apparent reason, there are certain risk factors which increase the chance that colorectal cancer will develop. Risk factors include: Ageing. Colorectal cancer is more common in older people. Eight out of ten people who are diagnosed with colorectal cancer are older than 60 years. If a close relative has had colorectal cancer (there is some genetic factor). If you have familial adenomatous polyposis or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer. However, these are rare inherited disorders. If you have ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease (conditions of the colon) for more than 8-10 years. Obesity. Lifestyle factors: little exercise, drinking a lot of alcohol.

CT scan - Lung cancer
My mom (age:64) Asian diagnosed with lung cancer. Summary: She is diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with rib cage bone metastasis. X-ray, CT on Thorax and Adomen, MRI on spine, blood test, Sputum cytology taken. CT scan show diffused nodules on both lung with consolidation on the upper left lobe. MRI shows compression fracture on T9 and T12 and minor press on spinal code. Blood test shows elevation of CEA tumor marker, 50x of normal reading. Sputum cytology suspect of Adenocarcinomas. Treatments: She has RT therapy for 2 weeks to treat the back pain followed by a week rest before Iressa intake for 6 days. Before the Iressa, she is on oxygen support but she is able to put it off for hours. After the iressa, she relied on the oxygen support more heavily and still breathless. There is an acute onset of dyspnea or worsening of the breathlessness, with cough and fever. She is under antibiotic and cough mixture to control the lung infection. Diagnosis (details) before treatment: Radiograph of the chest - There are extensive patchy confluent parenchymal opacities in both lungs with a larger opacity in the left upper/mid lung (measuring 3 x 4 cm); these are likely of infectious etiology. An underlying mass in the left upper/mid lung cannot be excluded. There are no pleural effusions. The heart size is within normal limits.Mild degenerative changes of the spine are noted. Blood Test: Alphafetoprotein 13 ug/L (0-9 normal) CEA 252 ug/L (0-5 normal) CA125 15 U/mL (0-35 normal) CA19-9 12 U/mL (0-35 normal) Sputum cytology - Atypical cells suspicious of adenocarcinoma (3ml of bloodstained mucoid fluid was used, 4 slides examined show a moderate cell yield. Atypical cells showing enlarged nuclei with coarse chromatin and pleomorphic nucleoli are noted. The cytoplasm are vacuolated. Microorganism and inflammatory cells including neutrophils and lymphocytes are noted in the background) CT THORAX AND ABDOMEN IV contrast-enhanced multi-slice contiguous axial sections of the thorax and abdomen were obtained. Total 90 ml of intravenous Omnipaque 350 were administered as contrast medium. Comparison was made with previous study dated 05/02/07. Diffuse subcentimeter nodules are seen in both lungs with areas of coalescence. Collapse consolidation of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. There is no pleural effusion detected. The tracheobronchial tree is unremarkable. Enlarged right paratracheal, pertracheal, subcarinal and bilateral hilar lymph nodes are noted. A few right supraclavicular and left axillary lymph nodes are also seen. The mediastinal vessels, cardiac chambers show normal opacification. The visualized thoracic aorta is of normal caliber with no significant thrombus formation. The liver is enlarged and again shows multiple large cysts. Mild interval increase in size of the segment 6 cyst now measuring 10.3x8.3 cm. This is seen displacing the right kidney inferiorly. No suspicious focal lesion is seen. The hepatic and portal vessels show normal enhancement. The biliary tree is not dilated. Gallstones are seen. No evidence of cholecystitis. The visualized pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenals and opacified bowel loops are unremarkable. Multiple sclerotic foci are noted along the sternum, thoracolumbar and sacral spine compatible with mestastasis. Compression fracture of T9 vertebral bodies noted. Metastatic body lesions involving the left scapula, right 6th, left 4th, 9th and 10th ribs are noted. Comment: - Collapse of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. Underlying malignancy cannot be excluded. Bronchoscopic biopsy is suggested. - The pulmonary nodules in both lungs are suggestive of metastasis. - Mediastinal lumphadenopathy - Diffuse bony metastasis as described above. - Hepatic cysts, the one in segment 6 showing mild interval increase in size. - Gallstones.

Webinar: CT Colonography - Screening for Colorectal Cancer in 2015
It's the screening method President Obama chose back in 2010 - so what do you need to know? This webinar will introduce the colorectal cancer screening modality of CT colonography (also known as virtual colonoscopy). We'll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of screening by this imaging-based method, including the meaning of low dose exposure to medical radiation and the impact of being able to detect unsuspected findings outside of the colon, which is not possible with other screening exams. To learn more, visit www.ccalliance.org or call (877) 422-2030. This webinar was made possible by generous support from ACR/MITA.

Early Warning Signs of Pancreatic Cancer
Early Warning Signs of Pancreatic Cancer Diabetes, especially if it comes on suddenly. Recently, the Mayo Clinic published startling research showing that 40 percent of pancreatic cancer patients had been diagnosed with diabetes one to two years before discovering they had a pancreatic tumor. Researchers believe the diabetes is caused by tumors that simply haven't been detected yet. The problem is, diabetes is very common, and the majority of diabetes isn't pancreatic cancer, so doctors are trying to develop screening tools to tell the difference. Right now, they say family history is an important clue. If you're diagnosed with diabetes that seems to come on suddenly and you have no family history of diabetes, bring this to your doctor's attention and ask for further screening for pancreatic cancer. Yellowing of the eyes or skin. Even a small pancreatic tumor can block the bile duct in the head of the pancreas, causing bile to build up. This causes jaundice. Itchy skin, palms, and soles of feet. A little-known side-effect of jaundice is itchy hands and feet. It's due to a skin reaction to the bilirubin, the yellowish brown liver chemical that causes jaundice. Lack of appetite. An Italian study found that six to eight months before being diagnosed with pancreatic tumors, patients reported a sudden drop in their appetite and a tendency to feel full after eating very little. Changes in taste. In the same Italian study, some of the patients surveyed said they'd suddenly lost their taste for coffee, wine, and smoking. In fact, they said, they felt "disgust" for the smell and taste of coffee and alcohol. Abdominal pain. Pancreatic cancer sufferers remember this pain as a gnawing pain, rather than a sharp cramp or ache, and it radiates toward the back. A characteristic clue: the pain goes away when you lean forward. An enlarged gall bladder. The same blockage of the bile duct that causes jaundice can also cause an enlarged gallbladder, as the bile builds up behind the duct. The good news is that an enlarged gallbladder can be seen on imaging tests, and it may even be possible for a doctor to feel it during a physical exam. Pale, floating, smelly stools. If a pancreatic tumor prevents digestive enzymes from reaching the intestine, the result is an inability to digest fatty foods. So you end up with loose, smelly "floaters" as a result of the excess fat. Doctors say this symptom, in particular, can be an early clue and is too often overlooked. Dark, tarry stools. Bleeding in the upper intestines causes this symptom. Sudden, unexplained weight loss. Weight loss is not always, as many people mistakenly believe, a sign of advanced cancer that's spread to the liver. It can also happen because a lack of pancreatic enzymes is causing fat to pass through the body undigested. New videos everyday!

Staging of colon cancer - Dr. Anil Kamath
Once the person is diagnosed with colon cancer based on the biopsy result, the next step would be to stage the disease.That is to see how much it has spread whether the disease is limited to the colon, or whether it has spread in and around the colon or whether it has spread far off, to the liver and lungs. Various tests like CT scan helps to determine stage of colon cancer.When the colon cancer is in early stage that is, its limited in the colon and around the colon, it would fall under stage 1 or 2.When it has spread far away like to the liver or lungs, it would fall under stage 4.Totally there would be four stages, stage 1,2,3 and 4. Treatment is determined by the stage of the disease.In stage 1-3,the predominant modality of treatment would be surgery.During surgery, affected portion of the colon with the margin that is, additional segment of healthy colon on both the distal side and proximal side is removed and ends of the colon are joined to each other.This operation is called Colectomy. Colectomy can be done in various methods, by open method or laparoscopic method.Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for colon cancer.Depending upon the stage additional modalities like chemotherapy or radiation might also be required for colon cancer..
Liver Cancer - Symptom, Causes & Diagnosis (Finding Earth)
Liver cancer Symptoms of liver cancer • Jaundice - • Abdominal pain - often on the right side, may reach as high up as the shoulder • Hepatomegaly - enlarged liver • Fatigue • Nausea • Back pain • General itching • Fever. • Weight loss • Loss of appetite • Feeling very full after a small meal • An enlarged spleen, felt as a mass under the ribs on the left side Some paraneoplastic syndromes related to liver cancer include: • Hypercalcemia: High blood calcium levels • Hypoglycemia: Low blood sugar levels • Erythrocytosis: High red blood cell count • Hypercholesterolemia: High cholesterol levels • Gynecomastia: Breast enlargement • Shrinking of testicles in men Causes: • Gender. Men are more likely to get hepatocellular carcinoma than women. • weight. Obesity can increase the risk for hepatocellular carcinoma. • race. In the U.S., liver cancer is most common in Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. • Anabolic steroid use. Male hormones abused by athletes to increase muscle can slightly increase liver cancer risk with long-term use. • Inherited metabolic diseases. Diseases that disrupt the normal metabolism of the body have been shown to increase your risk of liver cancer. • Rare diseases. Studies have found a link between liver cancer and some rare diseases like alpha -1-antitrypsin deficiency, tyrosinemia, and Wilson's disease. Cirrhosis Cirrhosis that may lead to liver cancer ,can be caused by • Infection with a virus such as hepatitis B or C • Long term alcohol drinking • Inherited diseases such as iron overload disorder and alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency Alcohol it may lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.. The symptoms are: • Having extra weight around the waist • Using insulin less effectively than normal • Type 2 diabetes • High blood pressure Smoking Low immunity Lupus Other causes include: Family history Diabetes Gallbladder removal Radiation from X-rays or CT scans Chemicals Diagnosis Liver Cancer Diagnostic Tests 1.Blood tests: 2.computerised tomography (CT) scans 3.magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans 4. Biopsy: A biopsy may be obtained by: • Fine needle aspiration (FNA): A thin needle is inserted into the liver to remove a small amount of tissue. • Core biopsy: This is similar to FNA, but a thicker needle is used to remove small cylinder-shaped samples (cores). • Laparoscopy: A small incision (cut) is made in the abdomen, and a thin, lighted tube (laparoscope) is inserted to view the tumor. • Surgical biopsy: Tissue is removed during an operation. 6.Angiogram: 7.ultrasound scans

Colonoscopy of Ulcerative Colitis
Colonooscopy of Ulcerative Colitis Ulcerative colitis (UC) is one of the 2 major types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), along with Crohn disease. Unlike Crohn disease, which can affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, UC characteristically involves the large bowel. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease characterized by diffuse mucosal inflammation of the colon. Ulcerative colitis always involves the rectum (i.e., proctitis), and it may extend proximally in a contiguous pattern to involve the sigmoid colon (i.e., proctosigmoiditis), the descending colon (i.e., left-sided colitis), or the entire colon (i.e., pancolitis). This article reviews the diagnosis and treatment of ulcerative colitis from a primary care perspective. What are the complications of ulcerative colitis? Colon cancer- Although most patients with ulcerative colitis will not develop colon cancer, patients with ulcerative colitis are at a 2 to 5 fold increased risk of developing colon cancer compared to persons without ulcerative colitis. Researchers believe the increased risk of colon cancer is related to chronic inflammation in the colon. In order to detect colon cancer at an early stage, most patients with ulcerative colitis will need to undergo colonoscopies on a regular interval that is more frequent than for patients without ulcerative colitis. The risk of colon cancer may be even higher in individuals who have a condition of the liver called primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) or with family members who have had colon cancer. All patients with ulcerative colitis should discuss the timing and frequency of colonoscopy with their gastroenterologist. Surgery- Most patients with ulcerative colitis will not require surgery. However, some patients may not respond to medications or have other severe symptoms that require removal of the colon. Removal of the colon is the closest thing to a "cure" for ulcerative colitis because unlike Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis does not affect other parts of the digestive system and should not recur after complete removal of the colon. After removal of the colon, patients may require either an ostomy (bag), or reconstructive surgery, referred to as a "J-pouch" or ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA). The choice of these options is between the patient and the surgeon as each option has its' advantages and disadvantages. Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease with recurrent symptoms and significant morbidity. The precise etiology is still unknown. As many as 25 percent of patients with ulcerative colitis have extraintestinal manifestations. The diagnosis is made endoscopically. Patients with UC predominantly complain of the following: Rectal bleeding Frequent stools Mucous discharge from the rectum Tenesmus (occasionally) Insidious onset Lower abdominal pain and severe dehydration from purulent rectal discharge (in severe cases, especially in the elderly) In some cases, UC has a fulminant course marked by the following: Severe diarrhea and cramps Fever Leukocytosis Abdominal distention UC is associated with various extracolonic manifestations, as follows: Uveitis Pyoderma gangrenosum Pleuritis Erythema nodosum Ankylosing spondylitis Spondyloarthropathies Other conditions associated with UC include the following: Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC) Recurrent subcutaneous abscesses unrelated to pyoderma gangrenosum Multiple sclerosisImmunobullous disease of the skin Physical findings are typically normal in mild disease, except for mild tenderness in the lower left abdominal quadrant. In severe disease, the following may be observed: Fever Tachycardia Significant abdominal tenderness Weight loss The severity of UC can be graded as follows: Mild: Bleeding per rectum, fewer than 4 bowel motions per day Moderate: Bleeding per rectum, more than 4 bowel motions per day Severe: Bleeding per rectum, more than 4 bowel motions per day, and a systemic illness with hypoalbuminemia (30 g/L). A colonoscopy or sigmoidoscopy are the most accurate methods for making a diagnosis of ulcerative colitis and ruling-out other possible conditions, such as Crohn's disease, diverticular disease, or cancer. For both tests, the doctor inserts an endoscope-a long, flexible, lighted tube connected to a computer and TV monitor-into the anus to see the inside of the colon and rectum. The doctor will be able to see any inflammation, bleeding, or ulcers on the colon wall. During the exam, the doctor may do a biopsy, which involves taking a sample of tissue from the lining of the colon to view with a microscope. Sometimes x rays such as a barium enema or CT scans are also used to diagnose ulcerative colitis or its complications.

Colorectal Cancer & Colon Cancer Hematology Oncologist Jacksonville FL| Oncology Orange Park 32258
http://DrAckermanJacksonvilleOncologist.com Jacksonville FL Hematology Oncologist Dr. Scot Ackerman speaks about uterine, cervical cancers and what is a PET CT-Scan. A PET scan creates pictures of organs and different tissues inside the body. A small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a patient's body. This substance is absorbed mainly by organs and tissues that use the most energy. Because cancer tends to use energy it absorbs more of the radioactive substance.
