The lowest part of the digestive system is called the colon. The last six inches of the colon are also called the rectum. After digestion of food, residues are discharged through the colon and rectum (commonly known as the large intestine). Cancer growing in this area is called colorectal cancer (or colon, rectal cancer).
"Early detection, early treatment" is the highest guiding principle. Early detection of colorectal cancer is not easy as described previously, but there are ways to do it. The American Cancer Society recommends:
Colon hydrotherapy is an effective, natural and safe way to relieve constipation and some chronic diseases.
Generally, when the legs are brought together, the labia minora will be retracted within the labia majora to protect the urethra and vaginal opening.
To detect renal, ureteral, cystic, and urethral lesions by using contrast medium and X-ray.
A hysterosalpingogram is an X-ray of the uterus and fallopian tubes which allows visualization of the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes via the water-soluble contrast media.
A GI series ( barium enema ) is a set of X-rays taken to examine the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon.
During the proceeding of the examination, family or companion accompanying the examinee in the examination room will be exposed to X-ray.
To examine the large intestine’s shape, function, and presence or absence of obstruction, ulcer, polyp, tumor or diverticulum by barium enema under X-ray.
Keep the ureter unobstructed to avoid renal edema caused by ureteral stricture, obstruction and mucosal edema, such as ureteral pressure caused by tumor compression, which prevents normal urine drainage.
