Discussions with your Healthcare Team
Meeting your surgeon one-on-one allows you to learn more about your diagnosis while getting the answers to any questions you have at this point. Your surgeon will review all the investigations and discuss the type of surgery they anticipate you will need based on your cancer and your overall health. This will depend on many factors like the location and size of the cancer, whether or not the cancer has spread outside of the colon, and where it has spread, if it has.
